How long before A record modification takes effect?


#1

We had a flattened CNAME record for the main domain of an account. I replaced with a A record directly to the IP of the new server.

Whatsmydns.net DNS propagation checker still points to the old server, after 30 minutes.

I believed that, with Cloudflare, record changes would be very fast.
Am I under the wrong impression?

Thanks,

If it’s :orange:, then it’s 5 minutes. If you post the domain name, someone can take a closer look.

It is: lamaisoncheznous.com

Your Cloudflare IP address isn’t going to change. Since a Flattened CNAME resolves to an IP address, just like an A record does, you’re not going to see a change at whatsmydns.

Is the site not working?

Never make assumptions and Always check the full IP address

Both the Cloudflare IP and old server IP starts with 104.
I assumed it was not being changed.

Heh, I always get backwards from you. Whenever I see a 104 address, I immediately think “Cloudflare!”
