It’s what makes your website easily accessible to everyone on the web. Without a domain name system (DNS), we would be typing full IP addresses into the browser bar! Strong DNS also makes your site load faster.
DNS refreshes every 24 hours, which is why propagation can take up to 3 days. It can also take as little as 2 hours. If you’re waiting to go live, we recommend using our DNS checker tool daily.
