If your domain was already parked with us, these records should take about 1 hour to propagate. If your domain was previously pointed to 3rd party nameservers, updates can take up to 24-48 hours to propagate worldwide, however it's typically much closer to 6-12 hours.
Please note: Sometimes other DNS records can conflict with the new ones you entered. Please feel free to contact our support team to determine if there are conflicting records which should be removed.
