A reload of root nameservers of the .at zone is carried out 12 times daily, every 2 odd-numbered hours (13:00, 15:00,... CET timezone).
The .at zone root nameserver reload times determine when DNS changes on a .at domain, such as after a change of provider (transfer to another registrar) technically activate.
We'll explain this using a brief example.
If a DNS update is carried out on an .at domain name, for example at 2:15 p.m., the modification is initially only reflected in the WHOIS data record of the registry, but is not immediately replicated to the Internet. The domain name remains accessible via the previous DNS servers until 3:00 p.m. when it will finally get resolved from newly configured DNS servers.
