    Help! Some Users See My Old Site On My Old Host!

    Some users are seeing my old site on my old host. Others go straight to the new site hosted by totalchoice. My nameservers are correctly pointed to Totalchoice (my host):

    Domain servers in listed order:
    NS1.TOTALCHOICEHOSTING.COM
    NS2.TOTALCHOICEHOSTING.COM

    What gives? How come this is happening to some users. I have tried clearing my cache, erasing cookies, etc. I restarted my router. No go. I am not the only one with this issue. My old site pings at 217.160.226.66. The new site should ping on totalchoice.

    I switched to dialup and I saw the new site. Back to high-speed and back to the old site. Very strange...

    Please help. Thanks.

    hosted by you guys
    err.. which guys?

    Different ISP's take different lengths of time to update their DNS, so if you just changed your nameservers it can take serveral days before everybody is seeing the site at the new location.

    DNS

    It takes time for the DNS to propagate. Give it a couple of more days.

    and if you were to wait for 72 hours and it does not propogate, than you still would need(recommended) try to reset the nameservers to point to your new host.

    its all in the DNS timing, you may be able and redirect to an ip if you got one

    Actually, for some countries, it can take up to TWO WEEKS to propogate (Asian countries are notorious for this, it's just how they operate).

    Definitely need to give it some time.
