We provide very basic sample of how to flush your DNS cache under Mac.
When transferring a domain name to us or when updating your DNS servers for the domain, your local computer DNS servers might be still resolving your old site IP address, which will lead to either you not being able to access your new site or you accessing the site hosted with your previous hosting company.
Usually after certain period of time (24-72 hours) your local computer will naturally start to resolve your new site IP, and you will start seeing your site hosted with us (instead of your old provider).
The resolved address could be 1) a loopback address or 0.0.0.0; 2) a local internal web server configured to “answer” all image requests mapped to a single pixel image file, and all text pages mapped to a warning message page; or 3) a machine with a personal firewall.
The last two configurations have the added advantage of generating log files for inspection as well as enable a snort or other IDS system to continue to see traffic.
Normally you will need to restart the caching service, or if you have local name server by using commands such as:/etc/init.d/nscd restart/etc/init.d/named restartor nscd -I hosts In combination with the above - you may need to reboot your computer and/or clear your browser cache.--If the above steps still do not help please, allow 24-72 hours for the new DNS change to take place and propagate throughout the Internet.
