    I'm still having problems with DNS resolution. I can't see it being an InstaFree problem though, as everything IF related is working well, and is very reliable and fast. When I try to access cpanel on a new domain I set up in a reseller account, it seems to be a bit random as to whether I get the cpanel, or the old domain monetising page. I've cleared various caches several times, but it still seems to find the old address about 25% of the time. It's not really a problem, as I can use the IF url whilst I set up the site.

    I seem to remember there is a TTL (time to live) parameter in the "A" record, and that some domain monetisers used to set that to a very high value to hang onto traffic for as long as possible. I'm inclined to ignore it for a day or two while I sort out the new site, and hopefully the URLs will resolve correctly then.

    Sir Clips, the cache is likely at the DNS server you are using and not your own computer (you can't clear remote caches). Different results make sense when you have to DNS servers set. Even when using google dns, on some occasions 8.8.4.4 may update faster than 8.8.8.8 (or the opposite).
    It can take up to 24 hours for IP changes to propagate to all ISPs around the globe. My old ISP, for example, used to ignore TTL values and just blindly cache records for 24 hours.

    opendns may be your answer since they are there to help work around DNS issues and are less prone to issues than google dns or ISP dns.

    Well I think I've made it worse by keeping on checking. That probably pushes the entry back up the stack, and it never gets refreshed. I'm trying a different approach with the second one. Don't look at the current page, add it to the hosting package, change the dns at my registrar, and leave it alone for at least 24 hours.

    It's slightly worse for me because I'm using public WiFi, and that probably introduces some extra cache tables.

    Your nameservers are incorrect.

    Name Server: ns1.conepuppy.com
    Name Server: ns2.conepuppy.com
    Name Server: ns3.private-rack.com
    Name Server: ns4.private-rack.com

    The times it is working, it is accessing the correct ones. When it's not working, it is accessing the first two.

    Conepuppy is going back a bit - that's Cyberwurx. I haven't used them for around six years, so I don't know where that has come from. The last time the name was used was AxeHosting which was my own name servers on a dedicated box with HostHead.

    They are correct in my registration details. who.is reports them as axehosting - which was correct a few months ago. For the last few months they have been redirecting to the oln monetising server.
    What a mess. I might do a forced update in a day or so.

    Thanks for looking Bryan. I'm a bit worried as to where that conepuppy entry came from. I can only think it's an old entry with my registrar.

    It was baronets.com that I was looking at. I see what you mean about Kuffy.com though. BuyAny.com is the latest one I changed, and that is still showing dsredirection.com ( the monetising service).

    Sorry to waste your time on this Bryan. I think I'll leave it all until tomorrow and reset them again. Thanks again for your help.

    I'm not happy Bryan. Conepuppy is listed at my registrar, and when I did the change, I pasted ns1, and manually changed 2,3 and 4. So I know I made the change. I'm not sure how or why they have changed the first 2 to conepuppy. Anyway, I've corrected it.

    Many thanks for pointing this out to me. :)
