TTL for host records when using our nameservers

Article Number: KB 842

Product: DNS/Nameservers


How many seconds/minutes is our Time To Live (TTL)? Can I change the TTL for my domain's host records on your name servers?


If you are using our name servers (dns1-5.name-services.com) the TTL (time to live) will vary from between 1800 and 3600 seconds (or 30 minutes to one hour).

This means that our name servers will advise any DNS resolver to cache your domain's host records for a maximum period of between 30 minutes to one hour. Please note, however, that TTL is only an advisory record. In reality, many recursive DNS servers cache DNS results for longer periods of time.

The TTL (time to live) value on our name servers cannot be changed at this time.
