    Hey,
    I am pulling my hair out and cant figure this out.

    I changed my name server settings on a domain 4 days ago (with godaddy) and they still have not chnaged to new settings.WTF is this normal? 4 days ?

    I have changed settings many times before and normally would take from a few hours to 24hrs max.I have logged in and double checked and everything looks good,but why so long ??

    Squirly, this is not normal. I just changed nameservers over the weekend, and it took all of 5 hours. Was all of your account information up to date?

    cmd > ipconfig /flushdns

    & check using http://nin-jacloak.com (remove - )it takes like few hours to show the new DNS. But might take longer for you. (ISP & shit)

    is it possible for you to change the basic dns settings like TTL or SOA? especially in the TTL (time to live) record is stored how long a dns query can be cached until it'll be requested again. depending on that value it can take up to a week or month to update. so better make sure to set a TTL value for a day (86400). i have this value as the default and that works perfect. if i want to move bigger site it put that TTL value down to a few minutes about a week before the real move. than the cache value is smaller and updates come faster which brings lower down-time.

    hope this helps for the future :)

    change your dns server on your TCP/IP configuration
    choose google dns: 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4
    or opendns: 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220
    ther run command "ipconfig /flushdns"
    I ussualy use this method to make sure.

    Are you with a hosting company? If so, you should just be able to call them and have them fix this.

    i have talked to hostgator support and they keep telling me to check with godaddy support.


    I have logged into my godaddy account and changed NS1 with my IP1 (in Host IP 1), click ok and enter values for NS2 (in Host IP2) click ok,although after when i check NS2,it has moved to the Host IP1 form. Is this right ?

    Godaddy definitely has the most complaints and lawsuits against them compared to other host registrars I've heard of.

    What was it like 2 years ago that they were caught stealing their clients domains?

    You should look at other places for hosting and domain registrations.

    I personally use namecheap.com because they are lenient, and they don't really give a damn what you do with your site, and they also have 24/7 live online support.

    yep Godaddy Sucks eggs. I have had the issue before where they did update and then like two days later go back to the old settings.

    I would move my domain name if I were you. I like namecheap and name.com both update pretty fast on dns settings.
