Why is DNS propagation taking so long?

It’s handy because it you had to remember the IP address of every website you visit, it would make surfing the internet much harder. When a site is set up, as the hosting provider we create a Master DNS record on our DNS servers, which updates any changes made to your DNS records on the server every 15 minutes.
