How many seconds/minutes is our Time To Live (TTL)?  Can I change the TTL for my domain's host records on your nameservers?

If you are using our nameservers (dns1-5.name-services.com) the TTL (time to live) will vary from between 1800 and 3600 seconds (or 30 minutes to one hour).

This means that our nameservers will advise any DNS resolver to cache your domain's host records for a maximum period of between 30 minutes to one hour.  Please note, however, that TTL is only an advisory record.  In reality, many recursive DNS servers cache DNS results for longer periods of time.

The TTL (time to live) value on our nameservers cannot be changed at this time.
