There's always plenty of tech-speak floating around among developers in the office. I certainly try to keep such spoken language at a minimum when working with clients but sometimes it just works its way in there. DNS and other domain-related processes can be pretty puzzling, period, let alone to someone dying for their website to go live. So how to excuse DNS propagation? .
I RECENTLY took in a co worker utilize the best explanation of DNS propagation ever in the world. It proceeded something like this :.
When a new phonebook comes out, We may already have the new one while yours has yet to be delivered. So when dialing the same number we might have two different expectations for who picks up on the other end.
Now that's definitely it. Every time a new domain name is pointed at the place a website is being hosted it can easily take up to a day or more for every corner of the web to get updated with that new information. The internet is certainly a strange beast but with solid analogies such as that no one has to be left in the dark.
