    Strange Domain Name Redirection

    Three days ago I have registered a domain with Hostway, next day it got globally propagated, and about 8 hours ago the domain (sharing one IP - assigned to ns2 - with ten other sites) spontaneously started redirecting all queries to the site bearer of the IP of the ns1. A second, 404.shtml redirection brings the query to another site.

    Here is what happens:

    http://www.serversold.com

    The redirection file is placed in the root of the ns1 IP associated site - vsdp.net, - and the final target is vdsp.net. There is no whatsoever redirection file placed in the root of the first domain. In fact, it works here

    http://www.serversold.com/~server/

    The possible candidate causes of the issue are:
    1. Different TTLs (86K and 172K)
    2. All started immediately after a new httpd.conf was initiated (may be irrelevant).
    3. Any other cause - please, suggest!

    Thanks

    Explainin cause 1:

    In my server's DNS Zone TTL have been set to 86200, while in parent TTL's (of the registrar) were 172400. I have changed my TTL to comply with my parent nameservers.

    Perhaps I should wait 48 hours for the changes to take effect...

    Changed httpd.conf
    Two of my accounts have been deactivated, hence the automatic redirection to the site of the master account.
