VeriSign has implemented an enhancement, called "rapid updates," to its .com and .net Domain Name System (DNS) servers.
Previously, VeriSign updated DNS servers for .com and .net twice each day by generating a file from its .com and .net registry database and globally distributing it to all 13 of the .com and .net DNS servers.
With the new rapid updates service, it will now be possible for domain registrants to launch Web sites more quickly and to experience "greater continuity" in service when changing hosting providers or modifying domain name registrations.
Because VeriSign's registry service is used by all registrars offering .com and .net registration services, such as GoDaddy, Open SRS and even VeriSign's own registrar service in the form of Network Solutions, this registry change will likely have a broad impact on the Internet
