Hello,
I was using Interland name server.When i was using changing the name server after buying the domain it usually takes 6 to 8 hours to propagate.

But now i was thinkinng to shift TZO.COM name server.but my major concern is after updating the domains;s name server to TZO.com, it got changed in 30 seceonds. i was quite surprise to see this.even i checked nic.com and dnsstuff.com i found my name server is changed. is it ok ??

as i heard that name server change usually  takes some time?how they are doing ?wat is the logic ?are they reliable ??

please suggest ....
thanks

JP

Looks liek TZO set the SOA (http://www.zytrax.com/books/dns/ch8/soa.html) record with a low  TTL (http://www.zytrax.com/books/dns/apa/ttl.html) in order to propagate the DNS records faster..  I suspect they set a low value in order to propragate it.
