Switching A record ip for purposes of switching servers

When you switch the A record ip address to a new server ip how quickly will the domain begin to forward to the new A record?

If you have the default configuration, it should take about 5 minutes. However, changes may take some more time to distribute globally.

DNS record changes can take up to 24 hours.

If the hostname is :orange: proxied, the public facing DNS won’t change, which will accelerate the timeline.

Global propagation of DNS changes is generally sub 30 seconds.
