Updated a clients domain name-servers to new ones.
Seeing the new site everywhere (EX: random starbucks, my house, on my phone).
At the office, it's still showing the old site on every computer.
I tried a DNS flush
. Didn't work.
How do I proceed from here?
I want to start a service that will put real letters into the mail via a website.
I kind of prefer a meaningless name that is simple, unambiguous to spell, and memorable that would grow with the site, if it began to branch out into different areas. And of course, the domain should be open. Any ideas? [more inside]

I have a domain name hosted by GoDaddy. For a year or so now I've not had a website, I've just had some DNS settings which 1) routed my email to gApps using MX records and 2) allowed me to use Jabber through the domain name by pointing the XMBB [more inside]
I recently sent my father (who lives in the Middle East) a Roku as a gift. Thing is, Rokus don't have any advanced networking options and we need to change his DNS in order to watch the programming he desires. The shitty modem/router that his ISP provides does not allow for changes to the DNS. It does, however, allow you to put in DDNS settings (screen shot here
). Would altering the DDNS settings override the DNS settings in the router? While changing ones DNS to appear like they're in the US is easy, I have no idea what, if anything, should go in the boxes on the DDNS page of his router. Thanks.
I have a russian (.ru) domain name I registered through nic.ru. Since the last time I paid they changed their payment processor and none of my credit cards work with the new one. I've talked to them, they've talked to the processor, I've talked to my card companies, but I can't pay them. Do you pay for Russian domains or make credit card payments to Russia? How can I renew this domain? [more inside]

My wireless router's DNS server is always kinda borked for some reason. Google's DNS works great. However, when I connect from campus, Google DNS doesn't work, but the campus DNS servers are fine with me. Is there any way I can tell my Windows 7 computer with one wireless adapter to use different settings for this depending on what wireless network I'm on? (The home DNS does return results, it just periodically starts thinking that Google is Yahoo, Sourceforge is Bing, other such weirdness.)

I run my own DNS. Recently, I moved the DNS server to a new IP block. I meticulously changed all the zone files. Months later, phantom traces of one of the old IP addresses still linger in the public DNS at times. Unfortunately, that one IP address is the address of my DNS server itself. Help! [more inside]

DNS with 1and1. Hosting with HostPC. Something weird happened with my hosting account on Friday. I received a spike in traffic that suspended my account. They got it working again, but only partially. Email is still out of service after a few days. They say they're working on it, but I don't know how hard, and I can't risk being without it for much longer, so I'm considering now just switching hosts instead of waiting for HostPC to fix the issue. What host can I switch to that will propagate the fastest and have my email up and working as quickly as possible? 1and1 because I'm also doing DNS with them, or am I better off with someone else? Thanks for any help. [more inside]
