    Now when you go to you are taken to the server it used to be on and consequently which is also the name server it is defined on: (The home page shows up as

    Most ISPs cache DNS info. So your ISP thinks it knows what IP the domain should go to and does not ask your name server. You will just have to wait for your ISP to update their DNS. Go to and trace the domain it should go to the correct IP.

    In this case you would use
    you can then try it against your dns server
    and then give it a try against your ISP's name server. You may get diffrent results and then you will know that it is a DNS cache problem. I hope that this helps in the future.
