    I've recently set up a new website – www.futurefive.org. I was viewing it on my iMac (OSX 10.7.5) and it was showing one of those placeholder pages (generic woman smiling, URL in a green bar at the top, with nonsense search items down the left). After the DNS resolved, the URL takes you to the website on every computer and iPhone EXCEPT this iMac. Still takes you to that placeholder page (see attachment). I've tried running the Terminal command sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder, but it doesn't change anything. Anyone have any ideas?

    Give it time, it can take over 24 hours for the DNS servers to synchronize.

    Contact your web host then, its not an issue with your local set up.

    When your iPhone accesses the site, is it on wifi? If so then its may not be DNS. Did you try clearing your web cache from your browser?

    I am getting the Future5 site (the correct one, not the placeholder), when I click on your URL.

    You may also want to flush the DNS resolver cache in your router (stop and restart).

    If other advice given fails...

    On your mac check two things:

    1) Look in /etc/hosts and make sure that domain is not listed already with a different IP - remove it if found as local DNS overrides remote (i.e. in terminal -> sudo vi /etc/hosts)

    2) Flush your Mac's DNS cache in terminal:
    sudo dscacheutil -flushcache

    :cool:

    All excellent advice. Thank you! Mysteriously, after no further action on my part, the DNS has resolved and the site is now showing up properly. One of those things, I guess. My best to all.
