    This will happen, as your dns records have been updated to a new IP address, so it will take up to 48 hours to propagate through the internet (usually its much quicker).

    That's normal due to ip caching. It usually takes about 24 hours to start working again. If you reboot your own computer that usually helps clear the cache and speed it up for you.

    www.fps-hacks.com is loading fast and fine for me at the moment. Are you still facing the issue? Seems like it was just a DNS propagation issue(Assuming that you did not revert back to the old IP :))

    In the future, if you drop your ttl on the domains to a low figure (like 5 minutes) several days beforehand, the change will appear across the net much faster (in most cases, some ISP ignore the ttl and cache it anyway)

    Odd.. I've used this same phrase several time today :p
