How do i know if my domain has been fully propagated?
Check to see if it loads in your borowser. If so, it has propagated. If not, then you'll have to wait a bit longer.
I find it usually takes about 24 hours.
It's one of those things that is good to sleep on, unless someone else is making a change on your behalf, in which cases you should pester them.
Not necessarily. It may have propagated for you, but not others. Really depends on your ISP. I've had some domains propagate for me personally in as little as 30 minutes. Some have take as long as 3 days.
Pick a country, and see how it's going...
As RockNRollPig said, it depends on your ISP.
Propagation is duplicating the new DNS info in all 13 root internet name server databases. Someone elsewhere in the world may use an ISP that routes DNS requests through a different name server than yours which may not have been updated yet.
If it loads in your browser, it has propagated to the name server that your ISP routes requests through.
72 hours is what I consider to be "safe" time for that unless something's wrong.
( I wouldn't launch anything on a name before 72 hours has passed since the change)
