How to use dig to get the TTL (time to load) of a domain
January 06, 2012
Obtaining the TTL for a domain is quite simple.
Open up a terminal and meet your new friend 'dig'.
Type the follow, replacing my website url with your own.
dig +nocmd dhewy.dev +noall +answer
The response you will get is:-
dhewy.dev. 3496 IN A 22.214.171.124
Your friend is 3496 this is your domains TTL.
Which is 3,496 seconds, or almost 1 hour.
