How long does it take DNS changes to fully propagate?

When you make changes to the DNS settings for your site (as, for example, to point your primary domain to our servers if you host your site with us) the changes may propagate within a matter of minutes, but it can sometimes take up to 48 hours for them to fully take effect (an hour or two is the typical time it will take for most sites). 

During the time the DNS settings are being propagated, you may still see your old site in some browsers/devices while seeing the new site on others. Specifically, you may see one version on your phone using your cellular data network and a different version on a desktop using a different network.
This is normal.
To track the progress of a DNS change you can use a tool like  https://www.whatsmydns.net/ to confirm that the change has gone through and see which regions are updated and which have yet to fully reflect the change.
