Web site not coming up

We use Network Solutions... and have for a while.

Our first site, A, is being directed to 123.456.789.123 and is working fine.

We just aquired site B.

I have changed "www" and "@ (None)" A records of site B to also point to 123.456.789.123... several days ago.

Site A continues to work while site B shows that the webpage cannot be found.

Pinging both A and B return the same 123.456.789.123 IP Address.

We're basically trying to get the new acquired company's website to point to ours.

Any thoughts... it's been a week and a half...  Site A is hosted at GoDaddy.

Googled htaccess redirect.

Second result has numerous ways to redirect a site.

It appears that these solutions show how to adjust IIS (which Network Solutions won't let me do to their servers) or via a page redirect (which won't work since I can't even get to a page to begin with).

I'm a little lost on how you're trying to point the new domain name to your currently hosted website.

So site A is hosted with Network Solutions and site b is\was hosted with go daddy. I assume go daddy is the doman registar for b as well?

When you say "I have changed "www" and "@ (None)" A records of site B to also point to 123.456.789.123... several days ago."

You changed this in the nameservers for the domain?

example of nameservers on my domain (go daddy) that point ot my host (hostgator).

The site itself is hosted at GoDaddy.  Sites A and B have Network Solutions as their registrar.  

Appears that NS won't allow both to point to one IP... you can point one but need, for a price, to "forward" the other.
