Flush the cache of public DNS databases

Another way to speed up DNS propagation is to flush the DNS cache from popular public databases like Google or OpenDNS. This ensures that these databases use the most recent version of your domain’s DNS records. Hence, it promotes both accurate search results and a positive customer experience.

Clear Google’s public DNS cache.
To do that, navigate to Google’s Public DNS console, type your domain with record type, then click the Flush cache button.
