So, I had my website on another host, I swapped hosts, DNS etc and can now view my website on it's new host only via proxy or via my VPS. the thing is, other people can see the new website perfectly fine, but everytime I try to access it, I have to use a proxy, otherwise I see the old error page for my old host!
How can I fix this?
EDIT: Tried clearing Cache, Temp Int files etc... still no luck.

Sounds like a propagation issue, how long ago before you changed the DNS of the website?
If you want, obtain the IP address of your server and then edit your (Hosts File) on your PC and add your site on a new line: xxx.xxx.xx.xxx yourdomain.com
Save the (Hosts File) and refresh your browser, you may need to close and clear your DNS cache and your site should load until the propagation is done, but that is a side step around it and should not be used unless you cannot access your site as you cannot seem to above.

Also, be sure to restart the computer after doing what Sean suggests. This should clear everything out as well. Another thing to do (I ALWAYS recommend it), is to use Public DNS. I personally choose to use Google's DNS servers as they have been extremely speedy for me.
If you would like to do that, right click your wired/wireless connection and go to properties. Click IPv4, then properties again. Check use the following DNS servers. The top one, put in 22.214.171.124 and the bottom, 126.96.36.199.
Hope this helps too!
