this description is not quite complete. what did your tests with your browser/ping do? did you reach the old server instead of the new one?

also, internic (or oznic) does NOT assign IP´s by itself, it just assign the "competence" of a DOMAIN to a nameserver on their root-name-servers.

anyway: any kind of such problems can be solved/debugged with "nslookup". have a look at it. if you are unsure, state the following, for us to debug it:

the IP of server X
the IP of server Y

when nslookup www.hippi.com at server X and Y is fine.

because at server X , i haven't delete the entry for apache and name server, so when i nslookup i can get it.(this doesn't matter ,right? bcos the Internic hav done the modification)

When i nslookup www.hipppi.com from local WinNT ,failed.

this does not give me the information needed, to give you further instructions.

what happens if you do the following:

nslookup - NOC.CERF.NET
>set q=any

what do you get for the nameservers? serverX or serverY?
where do you get with a "telnet www.hippi.com": serverX or serverY?

be aware, that the change done by internic may last on for at least one day, 'till it will be updated everywhere (or even a bit longer, depending on their settings).

i tried it now. i got NS1.NETNAMES.NET and NS2.NETNAMES.NET to be the nameservers for the "hippi.com" domain. is this correct?

it's not internic late for updating: it's the reason, why the internet name lookups work...... ;)

it would be better to delete the entries on the old server. generaly nothing will happen, until someone will use server X as his nameserver. at that point he will receive the old address and go for the old page.....

remove it. just to go for sure.
