You have to verify the DNS Server(s) registered at your registrar and compare that to what you actually have in production.

In your Registrar (Network Solutions, GoDaddy, or where ever you purchased your domain name(s)), view the domain configuration in question, and note the DNS Servers (Name Servers) listed for the domain.  Compare the 1 or more servers (names and/or IP addresses) to the servers that are currently setup to support DNS Services for the domain in question.

You will need access to your Registrar account and a way of verifying which servers are actually answering for the domain.  The list at the registrar should match the live DNS servers.  If it does not, update your Registrar information to include the correct IP addresses of the domain's DNS servers.  I can take up to 24 hours for your Registrar to update their information.
