Propagation is a very common term in the world of domains, not necessarily common in our day to day vocabulary. The Proper meaning of propagation according to the dictionary is the action of widely spreading and promoting an idea, theory, etc. Which, in a way, is what domain propagation means in the world of domains, but instead of idea, theory, etc. it spreads data. Data that you either changed or newly entered for all of the internet to know.
To put a more technical meaning to the term “propagation”. Propagation is the estimated amount of time it takes a domain’s Domain Name Server information to be updated across the entirety of the internet after a change is made. The process may take up to 72 hours to complete in full. Because of propagation, not all who attempt your domain will be directed to your new name servers on your new hosting account; some will continue to be directed to your old name servers on your old hosting account until propagation is finished.
Many things affect propagation time, including your TTL, your ISP and your domain’s registry.
