comment How to verify DNS change is active
@joeqwerty Edited my question. It seems "propagation" means something more specific to the sysadmin people, and using it with DNS changes is misleading in the professional context.

"propagation" means more specific things to sysadmins, removing it

So.. in the case of my question, the change can be confirmed as "active" (= not yet globally available, but can already be trusted to get eventually distributed to the DNS network) by checking with relevant dig or host command that all the dnsX.myprovider.com listed by the dig mydomain.fi NS give the new ip 2.2.2.2 instead of the old 1.1.1.1. Further, this method of determination only works after the TTL values listed in the dig NS query have been observed to reach zero (and jump back up) at least once?

@joeqwerty I always try to use the correct terminology when I'm aware of it, and I'm also interested in techical subtleties conveyed by language. Please point me to some source where I can read details on why DNS information being slowly distributed to an increasing area due to cache aging should not be called "propagation", so that I can fix both the terminology used in the question and also any further use in my own language.

Doesn't running dig @authorative.dns.com mydomain.fi produce the same results than host mydomain.fi authorative.dns.com which is what I did in the question?

Is there a way to check the TTL? It's probably 15 min though, since they said it should only take that long to be active.

(Prior comments striked.) Thanks, it was the "Deny from all" that was missing from me.

Worked! Thanks! The key seems to have been the "Deny from all" directive.
