Cachecheck says one thing, my browser fetches another

    If dig or nslookup return the correct IP address, then the culprit is your browser, evidently. It disregards or does not use your OS settings.

    My error. I checked having swapped out OpenDNS for Google DNS. (Helps if I change just one thing at a time!)
    OpenDNS cachecheck says all caches pointing to 77.73.1.53. With OpenDNS set however, I get the old website at the old host in all my browsers...
    dig +noall +answer +comments www.attenzi.comwww.attenzi.com.    8822    IN    CNAME    attenzi.com.attenzi.com.        8821    IN    A    69.89.31.175But when I have Google DNS set... ;; ANSWER SECTION:www.attenzi.com.    1050    IN    CNAME    philipsheldrake.com.philipsheldrake.com.    1050    IN    A    77.73.1.53

    My knowledge of DNS is at its limits now. I can't explain this.

    Open a support ticket, because this could be an OpenDNS problem then.

    "I checked having swapped out OpenDNS for Google DNS."

    Tip: Check against any resolver you want, and with certainty, by specifying the resolver address in the DiG query.

    dig www.attenzi.com @208.67.220.220

     

    However, I see the same response form Google and OpenDNS. Likely the change simply had not yet propagated enough to reach all resolvers.

    Additional note:

    http://www.intodns.com/attenzi.com  thinks there is something weird about your SOA serial number.  This is beyond me, but you may want to check it out with your hosting service. Also, you have no MX records, which is just fine if you don't do mail.

    This can be useful in checking propagation, although it hardly covers every resolver: http://www.whatsmydns.net

    There are other services which do this as well: https://www.google.com/search?q=check+DNS+propagation

    Best wishes.
