    Might be some caching issue. Have a check of these.

    dig @server_IP www.domain.com

    Many apps nowadays have built-in features to always serve content either from www.domain.com or domain.com but not both so that it helps with curbing any dilution of search engine rankings. That and many SEO-aware individuals will add .htaccess files to their accounts to direct all traffic one way or another.
