    I have previusly used namecheap for my domain registrations and everytime I add my hosting dns I can instantly upload files to my addon account and they appear on domain.

    I was just transfered a site in godaddy and I have added my DNS and the domain to my host but it isnt coming up with wat i upload :|


    How long does DNS change with godaddy take?? Iv barely used them and I hate them already.

    As long as it takes your isp to renew their cache (24-48 hours) which is why you are not seeing resolution. More than likely you typed in the domain name before you changed the NS. Try your site though a proxy to verify this. It is the same as NC.

    You can go ahead and upload your files by logging in to your main account and changing to the correct directory.

    Don't hate godaddy just for this (there are other reasons to). The time it's taking is due to the Internet root servers being updated and unrelated to godaddy. That takes anywhere from a couple of hours to 2 days. Do a whois for your domain which should tell you something about the current status.

    1 - 48 hours.

    Although, with Namecheap if you enter the nameserver upon registration they do instantly change i find.

    Normally on godaddy they change instantly also. If you don't get an update in a couple of hours, I would try to submit again.. rarely have they taken more than a few minutes for any of mine.

    Godaddy rocks. I have 50 domains with them and everytime I change DNS, I can see it within 2 hours. Now I have a domain with bluehost and I updated almost 14 hours ago, I don't see any changes at all..

    The delay before DNS changes come in effect (except changing the actual DNS servers for your domain) is fully customizable. You can set the TTL (Time To Live) for any record to be as low as a few minutes, though this would greatly increase the load on the DNS servers.

    GoDaddy uses 2 hours as the default, but you can change this. However, when you're about to change the Primary and Secondary DNS servers for your domain, this update is submitted to the root servers which are independent of any commercial domain registrar. This can take upto 48 hours and if any registrar claims to do this instantly, it ain't true.

    I have seen people hitting the old server for weeks or even months after a DNS change but the majority of people (95% - 98%) move within 15 minutes. Our name service provider drops the TTL down quite low on the day before the change was requested for and cranks it back up afterwards.

    The usual reason for all this is DNS caching which is completely out of your control. Firefox and IE both cache DNS locally so after the change you will usually have to quit and restart your browser. You won't be able to get your users to do that so you will just have to wait until they do it themselves. Googlebots seem to keep hold of DNS for about a week but they cache it locally so some bots may find your new server while others keep hitting the old one. Other bots exhibit similar behaviour.

    The best bet is to keep both servers running for at least a week after the change or until you see that no one is using the old one anymore.

    I never said sumone claimed to do this. Namecheap has been doing it. They have been instant for anything I have done.

    It could be that you are both near the same root server and see the changes instantly. 48 hours is the maximum time that the TLD root servers require to update, but depending on the traffic, the change may be propagated a lot faster.

    Here is my 2 cents... when I do a new domain on godaddy.. within seconds the url shows their garbage, and I can go to my host and set it up...takes about 3 min and within 30 min it has propagated to me...
    So on the average for me godaddy propagates in 30 min or less.... never had to wait the legal 24 to 48 hours for godaddy.

    Mine took around 12 hours... it's rather long, but it still is tolerable.
