    I bought ten domains yesterday from godaddy and immediately changed the nameservers to a couple of my hosting accounts. In the past, I could view my new sites after fifteen or so minutes, but almost always under an hour.

    Well, after nearly a day, I still can't view a single domain I purchased. I know it says it can take 24-48 hours to propagate, but this has never been my experience. I guess the really annoying part is two of the sites are for my daughters and I told them I would have them 'live' within a hour. Now, virtually every half hour it seems, they 'update' me that the sites are still not live. They will be getting up soon, so I am sure the 'updates' will continue.

    Has anybody else had this problem? How long did it ultimately take for your sites?

    ive had this several times with godaddy, go back in and change them again, even though the NS you want are there just re-add them and submit. usually come live within 15 mins.

    Depends on the DNS level and the TTL of the DNS. Just the luck of the draw really!

    Godaddy is slow as shit with everything they do... It takes them 30min to make an FTP. And it always takes me 24-48 to see my domains set correct... They do this to hold onto adrevenue. IMHO

    Use NameCheap. They are very fast. I use them pretty often.

    It does take up to 48 hours, if you can access it earlier than that it's just lucky.
    Other registrars will not have any better performance on this matter.

    Maybe you or your ISP cached the old entries, a lot of ISPs cache much longer than specified to save ressources.
    Try use another nameserver.

    This might not be a GoDaddy issue at all.. Assuming your pointed to the correct nameservers, and the nameservers are configured correctly.. The only thing left is your DNS provided by your ISP.

    RoadRunner and AT&T are notorious for not updating and taking 24hrs or more to see any change in dns for a url. Comcast is slightly better, but not much. And don't get me started talking about western europe.

    This happened to me about 4 days ago. Their explanation was they charged my credit card, sent me the dns. I went and saved link and all info. Then they credited my card (they said to verify it was real) Charged my cc again and then resent me another 2 emails. I assumed it was the same DNS but it was a different one. If you got more than 2 emails, you could be trying to log into the wrong DNS. Hope this helps.

    If you tried to access the sites before updating the name server/IP addresses, the old information will be distributed. So you will have to wait for the cache to update.

    48h is the maximum time. If you are lookup the details on a whois.

    godaddy totally sucks on that aspect! the faster dns propagation i know is at dynadot.com, which is almost instant.

    Why not try a proxy. The problem may be with your ISP

    it can hardly be instant as dns is cached by nature

    I always change my nameserverts when buying the domains, that way its live striaght away.

    Out of interest can anyone confirm that if a domain gets reported to godaddy for spam, that they really take ownership of the domain?

    To speed up the transfer, you can edit your windows hosts file and add an entry like:

    123.45.67.890 site.com
    123.45.67.890 www.site.com

    Using the IP of your new server, and force your PC to resolve the new hosting.

    Yeah they null route your DNS so your domain doesn't point to your site, they done it to me once. They didn't take the domain in my case, but i had to contact them and BS i wouldn't do it again. That's when i started moving several hundred domains to Namecheap.
