Name Server updates – 24 to 48 hours?

Well if you own a .com or a .net domain, it can take up to 24 hours for the domain name servers to update fully and point to the new server without having to bounce back to the old one periodically. But domains such as .info, .org, and .us, and a few other extensions can take up to 48 hours to update the name servers. Talk about being slow.

The only reason they do this is for security reasons. These domain extensions were once or still is reserved for certain types of organizations or businesses. And ICANN does not want any business breaching or anything. This gives the regular owners time to switch the nameservers back. But if you are the one to forward the domain, then it could be a bit annoying to you. Just a heads up on those domains if you didn’t already know.
