    It can take up to 72 hours for a change in DNS to spread across the internet.
    72 hours? That's an eternity! There must (or should) be a better way! I really think that DNS is an outdated technology. Changing servers should be almost instantenious, not taking 72 hours.

    Well it has to trickle down from the main servers to the ISP or local servers. There wouldn't be a delay if all the DNS servers didn't cache stuff, but that would cost a lot of bandwidth. People running local servers though can just lower the cache lifetime and these changes will be received sooner.
