Zone file loading really slow (for names registered via subdomain registrar)

Hi, it seems the loading of the zone file in Blockstack Explorer and CLI’s is terribly slow.

What is going on, @jude ?

Important: This is for names registered via subdomain registrar !

Hey @jefvanbockryck,

The subdomain registrar sends out a new zone file every time it has pending names to register. However, the zone file itself needs to replicate to the peer network, and then the blockstack nodes in the peer network need to process it. This can be the source of additional latency. Can you tell me which name you were resolving?

Thanks @jude, it most likely is exactly that, the latency to replicate the zone file across the peer network.

It’s all fine now.
