    Hello everyone,

    I have been in the hosting business for quite a while and I noticed, when you assign a dedicated IP to an account, dns propagation can take a bit.

    How long does it normally take for your sites to allow access on the new dedicated ip?

    Hello :)

    The change happens right away on the cPanel server. However, the time it takes for your ISP to recognize the updated IP address can vary. Try clearing the browser and DNS cache on your own machine to see if that helps speed up the process in the future.

    Thank you.

    Normally Dedicated IP take 2 hours but not sure because depend on ISP. Generally DNS propagation take 12-24 hours

    It is also depends upon ttl value set in dns zone file. Should ttl value set to lower , say minimum 4 hours (generally it is 24 hours) dns records should be refreshed asap.

    In extreme cases I have seen DNS propagation take up to 72 hours. It all depends on your TTL settings, which you can control, and the caches of DNS servers all around the world, which unfortunately you cannot control.
