    yes but why it is happening that half of the members are being taken to the old server and half are taken to the new server ??

    thats is the main problem !!

    is it a dns zone thing or something else.....

    How can you tell that half are taken to the old server? Are all your members from a certain location in the world? If yes then probably they are using a caching DNS server and it resolves incorrectly.

    well i live In India and many of my members told me this problem but strange thing is that i am not facing this problem !!

    I also talked to my several U.S And Canadian Members and they also face the same problem thats why i used the term Half as 90% of my site traffic is from U.S and Canada !!

    I would change the dns server IP in resolv.conf or move it down the list and put the servers IP at the top of the list and restart named for good measure. If the server IP is already first, move IT down the list. If its a cpanel server - which being formerly at that host I'd guess it is, go into WHM and clickl "Nameserver Setup" again and go through it like it was ther first time. That will clear any cache the server might be using.

    Also try logging into the server at the command line and type dig domain.tld and see where the server itself is getting it info.
