    GoDaddy domains taking 7 days to propagate?
    I heard from a friend that it's taking 7 days for domains registered with godaddy to propagate at the hosting service to which the nameservers have been pointed.
    I have many domains registered with godaddy but I registered these domains and configured the nameservers long ago and did not have this kind of issue.
    The problem seems to have just surfaced. Anybody who has firsthand experience with it?

    That is the "standard". It usually is faster, but lately has been taking longer again, in general, but mostly with GoDaddy. I have a client waiting for an SSL to propagate with GoDaddy and it's taking forever.

    You're hosting with GoDaddy? Ouch!

    On another note - I can register a domain at Moniker or eNom and have a working site online usually within a couple of hours. I did this as recently as two weeks ago. I do have a few domains "left" with GoDaddy but don't purchase any there. Rates are a bit lower elsewhere.

    I've registered over 200 domains with godaddy over the years, and more often than not, they propogate within minutes. There was one time that it took a little over a day, one time it took about 9 hours, and maybe 4 or 5 times it took a couple of hours. I registered 14 in the past month and every single one of them propogated in less than two minutes.

    My hosting company that I have been using for many years is getting freaking expensive as I build more and more sites.

    W/ GD, I can have as many domains on my MSG account, as long as I don't exceed a 150,000 megabytes of disk and bandwidth.

    That's a ton of 10 page sites in their start up phase.

    I'll transfer them if the combined site usage gets close to the limit I guess.

    I am with Bill on this one.

    I have a number of domains registered with Godaddy. Never host with them.
    I recently switched nameservers for some domains.......propogation usually takes less than an hour.

    Can the slowness be attributed to your host??

    Propagation generally takes only an hour or two for me as well... no matter which of my hosts are involved.

    I have never had it take more than an hour to propagate. I buy the domains through Godaddy and host via HostGator. The last batch I did took about 10 minutes a piece.

    That's more my experience. Godaddy/HostGator combo, few minutes, if that.

    Maybe the GD slowdown happened last week when GD was setting up and sending out all of the emails that said 're-up all of your domains' and then listed all of your domains - that must have made one or more of their servers groan.

    Most of my domains have been propagating in hours also, but the "standard" is 5-7 days, even if it has been much faster in recent years. And GoDaddy *has* been taking longer for some things. It *shouldn't* take more than couple of hours or days at most, but sometimes things don't work the way we have come to expect.
