Solution to a huge problem I had with my website

Well, I didn't know if I should post this or not, but it has been such a frustrating week with one of my developed IDN websites due to a host change. Everytime I went to my website on MY computer, I would get the Dynadot home page. Every other computer was fine.

After 3 hours of tech support and countless emails to my hosting/registrar trying to figure out what was wrong with my comp (it wasnt my cache...),

if you have this problem click start>run>cmd>type in ipconfig /flushdns

that simple. 3 days wasted on the stupidest issue, and Road Runner tech 3 knows nothing.

Re: Solution to a huge problem I had with my website

Thats an OK post...we have all been there in one way or another. But thanks for sharing this problem and solution.

Speaking of problems...what I am curious about is what they the hell they do to you
when you show up at the hospital with one of those "erections lasting more than 4 hours"
Cialis has been warning us about on TV. lol

It was, actually. Your DNS cache.

Re: Solution to a huge problem I had with my website

If you want to do a host change on a popular site and don't want your members to end up at the wrong, cached (at numerous levels), IP # after the change, you have to plan ahead, and reduce the TTL on the DNS records prior to the move, and prior to changing the IP # in the DNS.

I wish I knew what any of that meant, haven't really been into website creating in about 7-8 years. I did put up an HTML page saying the site was down due to server upgrades, but 4-5 days now.... I'm pretty sure I can get the people to come back, it's only a matter of solving this stupid problem. Time Warner tech's are retarded, and Google can only provide so much information. Anyone have any clue what's going on? This is really frustrating, and just doesn't make sense.


So it works again..... but only without the www.

Re: Solution to a huge problem I had with my website

The solution is to hire someone who knows how to set up a site to take care of the details that you do not know how to handle.
