DNS changes

Slashdot has reported that Verisign will begin making updates to the DNS system every few SECONDS instead of twice per day, starting September 8th. This is HUGE news for us involved in the web hosting/design business as it makes domain name registrations and name server changes almost instantaneous. According to the FAQ posted on Verisign’s site, the average time required for a change to propagate will be reduced from 18 hours to something in the neighborhood of five minutes.

I can’t recall if I blasted Verisign for the wildcard DNS entry a year or so ago when they started that crap, but either way, this is major points for Verisign from me and all my domains!
