TTL and web site performance
Posted on 2009-04-23
A simple question - but way beyond me.
If the A record pointing to the www of the domain name is set with a TTL of 1 minute, will this have a performance impact over setting it to say 1 hour.
I only ask as I am experiencing a huge delay ( 10's of seconds) accessing a website I normally use and looking into this I found the 1 minute value.
I looked at other sites and find this TTL to be much higher.
Would this explain the delay
