    Hey all, i am having really annoying issues with my safari at the moment.

    I had a server with 3 domains pointing to 3 websites on that server. Recently it got attacked and i've moved to a newly built server. All DNS have been updated etc.

    Now, all 3 URLS, when viewed on my computer, will still show me the OLD server, and its content.

    My web hosts, say that the domains show them the NEW servers content.

    If i view the domain names on my mobile, using a 3g connection, it shows the NEW server content.

    If i connect the mobile to WiFi, it shows the OLD servers content.

    This is driving me crazy! I have done all the reset options in safari, and also browsed manually to the cache folder and deleted it and reset the computer, but still no luck..

    I can't share the urls either for various reasons.

    Anyone have any ideas that could stop me from going crazy?

    Thank you!

    Your ISP may also cache DNS, 24 hours is common. If flushing your local cache doesn't help, you can enter the new IPs manually in your hosts file, or just wait it out.

    Thank you for the suggestion. I just tried that and no luck. It's really really odd!

    How or what would i do for this? I'm willing to try anything right now! I need to get to these sites on the new server :)

    This seems to have done the trick perfectly! Two of the three websites now instantly load the new server and new content.

    Never knew of Google DNS before.

    Thanks millions :)

    Nothing to be done. By switching DNS, you now see the new servers. People who are still on your old ISP, or whose ISP had already cached your old addresses, would still see the old ones for up to 24 hours. It's just how the Internet works.

    By now, everyone's switched over.
