DNS Propogation Checkers to Check DNS Propogation Status
« on: February 09, 2011, 06:21:23 AM »
I didn't even think about the possibility of such utilities but i can certainly see why they would be useful when moving servers:

As written up on the ilovefreesoftware.com site:

Here are 5 DNS Propogation Checkers to check DNS propogation status of your website. These tools are helpful if you have recently setup a new domain, or have changed nameservers of an existing domain. DNS propogation normally takes 24-48 hours, but these DNS Propogation checkers will tell you exactly what is the current status of DNS propogation

Interesting, I typically use nslookup in interactive mode to query various servers to see how things are progressing. But this could be handy for those days where I'm feeling a bit lazy...or am just too pressed for time to schlog through the whole manual routine.

That would be very handy. I typically have overlap in those scenarios. Just because DNS has propagated in one area, doesn't mean it has in another, so geographic differences really can be deceiving.

A quick & dirty way to check is to use a Spyglass from one of the major bandwidth providers like Level3 (they have an excellent spyglass).

Come to think of it, that would be a simple way to wrap up a DNS checker...

Better to invest in a spell checker than a "propogation" checker.

Quite to the contrary, I think there is a great market for propoogation checkers. They are after the only way to conclusively know when when someone is coming close to being completely full of shit.

...Why if you only had one you'd know I've been topped off for a while... ;)
