The last time I had to deal with updating nameservers for a domain name, it took a couple days for the DNS to refresh and the domain point to the new server. That was a couple years back. Today I was helping a friend move his site from an old host to a new one. A little less than an hour ago, I logged into the domain registrar's site and pointed the domain name to the new nameserver. Of course, the change wasn't immediate. But just a few minutes ago, I went to the new domain, and lo and behold, it was updated. So what used to be a 24-48 hour deal is now 24-48 minutes it seems. My question is, since when were nameserver changes this fast? It's much more convienent than the way it used to be with the wait.
