DNS Nameserver taking longer than 24 hours

I have changed the DNS forwarding on my website (not .com) to InMotion and it has not propagated in a 24 hour period.

My understanding is it should have happened by now. This is the first time I have used a '.co' and I'm wondering if maybe there is a difference?

Please let me know.

Hello Oivaizmir,

Sorry to hear you're having problems with the DNS. We normal state 24 hours or less of DNS propagation in association with our domain registrar (Melbourne IT). In your case, since you're using a .CO domain, and it is not within our control, so we can not take corrective action with your DNS changes. You will need to contact your Domain Registrar and see if the changes have been applied. I have seen other domain registrars state 24-48 hours for the DNS change to apply, so you may be seeing the DNS propagation period last a little longer.

Apologies again that we cannot correct the issue for you.

Kindest Regards,
Arnel C.
