Sharepoint 2012 site not live after migration

Hi all,
We have just made DNS change to point to  new Sharepoint 2012 site (old one was on Sharepoint 3) now our home page in the browser doesnt display the old one as well as new one...
What we have to check apart from changing the DNS settings?

A few points here:
Maybe the DNS change was not done exactly correctly, so double check that.
Does your new home page display when you are directly on the server?
Have you tried to access the new page via ip address? Does it work?
Are the old and new using the same URL?
Check the alternative access mappings under central administrator of the new page to make sure they are correct.

Good luck...

I am trying to drill down the issue, this is what i have found, kindly see the attachment.
Old SharePoint site is configured on xyz.com.au, new SharePoint A Record is hosted at Domain.internal.
Now when i delete the A record of old SharePoint site from xyz.com.au, browser doesn't pick up the new Sharepoint site whose A record are hosted at Domain.internal, i have waited upto 5 hours.
Both sites have different URLs.

thanks.

Thanks for the screen shot.  It looks correct, but very hard to tell from here.

If you use NSLookup to test the name or url resolution, what are your results? Try that and if the results are not correct you may need to make corrections.

Good luck...

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
