Moved Website, but computer retains old web site direction

I moved a wordpress website from the original server X to new web server A.

On any computer outside my home computer, I am seeing the site on Server A.

On the computers inside my home, I am seeing the web site on server X.

I have run ccleaner and flushed my dns, yet I continue to see the files on server X.

I have tried looking at the website with Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, Chrome and Opera, yet they all see the old site on Server X.

Can someone help me clear the old out so I can see the new.

Thank you.

How long since you changed? It can take 24hrs to update everywhere

You could either reboot your router and/or tell your PC to use OpenDNS's nameservers (notes on how to change Windows to use them at https://use.opendns.com/) of 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220 (their Cache Check lets you force a refresh - http://cachecheck.opendns.com/)

That'll work unless you've manually edited your PC's c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file to point to the old server

You tagged with cpanel - if you do use cPanel you can use the "Advanced DNS Zone Editor" option if you have it enabled and available, you can use it to set the IP address of your new server in the A record on the old server.

The changes were made about 10 days ago, so we should be well past any resolution issues.

I will double check cpanel, but I am thinking it is OK.

I will definitely do the cache check at open DNS.  

Any new response from me will be later tonight or tomorrow.

Thank you.

The old site eventually cleared from my computer.  I basically had to take it to another local and connect to the website. It was a pain, but it is done.

Thank you for taking the time to help me explore this.  Still not really resolved, but I appreciated your suggestions.
