Clear your browser cache
Try clearing your browser cache. If you are unsure about how to do this; please follow this link : Click here
Sometimes this won’t work and you may need to try something else, if clearing your browser cache is not working for you then now it’s time to do a little trick. We need to flush(clear) our local DNS cache (This is very useful while you are busy moving your site; mostly because your local dns cache usually remembers the previous results for a few more minutes.) Let us see how to clear the local dns cache.
Clearing Local DNS cache (Windows)
If you are using windows then you have to open your command window (go tostart menu -> click on run -> type cmd there and press enter.), make sure you have administrative privilege to do this. Now you have to type a command inorder to clear your DNS cache.
this will help you clear the local dns cache (If you are on windows vista you have to start your command prompt with administrative privilege; which can be done by typing cmd in the search field in start menuand then right click and you will see a Run as administrator option and execute the above command)
Clearing Local DNS cache (Linux)
I am using Ubuntu; by default it doesn’t come with the daemon to flush the local DNS cache; so if you are using Ubuntu linux then you will have to install nscddaemon by running the following command in your terminal.
sudo apt-get install nscd
Once nscd daemon is installed you can run by typing the following command
sudo /etc/init.d/nscd restart
If you are using other Linux flavors probably you can try this and see if it works.
try this command in your terminal : /etc/rc.d/init.d/nscd restart
Still your problem is not solved ?
Then most probably it has something to do with your Internet Service Providers DNS cache; So call then and tell your problem, they will provide you with an alternative proxy address, or they will solve the problem for you.
If you are a Virgin Meda Broadband user in UK, then try this
I use the Virgin Media Broadband; they have provided me with a new proxy address : webcache.virginmedia.com and port: 8080
(Follow the instructions here to set up your proxy settings)
