With an “optimised technical procedure”, newly registered .de domain names are now live within 5 minutes from registration DENIC has announced. The changes also apply to changes to domain name registrant data.
It means should there be the desire of the registrant, they can get started with creating email addresses and uploading websites, as well as seeing the effects of changed registrant data and name server entries almost immediately.
When a domain name is registered through a registrar, or a reseller, the .de zone file was previously updated every hour, but now the updates happen every minute. With the zone file updates occurring every minute, it means that the updates are much smaller than the hourly zone file that previously occurred.
