is this a site you are hosting internally?
Check your dns server for a record to the old site.
Flush dns cache on server and clients.

type "nslookup <webaddress>" at a command prompt.

Take note of what it is uses as the DNS server to resolve it.

The first one is my dns server

The non-authorative answer is

63.149.6.91, 63.149.6.91

which is the old one, it should go to 209.217.33.231

You have to change the DNS request forwarding in your DNS server.  In the DNS MMC, right-click your server, goto properties, and then "forwarders"

i see in the Forwarders tab


Forwarders help resolve any DNS queries not answered by this server.

do i go ahead and put in the 209.217.33.231 address?

click "action -> clear cache"

Then look through your forward lookup zones for a hardcoded record for this particular website.

How long has it been since the IP address changed?  sometimes it takes 48 hours.
