A website which we run shows up with different Ip addresses when you run a who.is check and a woorank.com check. The woorank check reports back the website from a fair few years ago even though the website has been running fine for many years from the new Ip address. Is there a problem with the DNS setup?

Check if there are multiple A records published for the domain name in the zone file via: http://www.kloth.net/services/dig.php

Brilliant, yes it shows servers detected. How could this have happened and what would be the best way to solve it?

When the new A record was added it wasnt updating the existing entry. You will have to remove the old A record by having your zone file amended by your hosting provider. This is generally the company in the domain field under the NS entries if you do a search on the same site but change the query type to nameserver
