www redirecting to old site

Hi Guys

I have just finished a site for client which is hosted at Hostgator. The domain is registered with Namesco. I did not want to disturb the clients email set up so just pointed the A record to hostgator.

In the Wordpress general settings i have not used the www so when you type in

http://totalfacilitiesmanagement.co.uk/ you end up on the new site.

HOWEVER

when you type in http://www.totalfacilitiesmanagement.co.uk/ you end up on the old site.

Where do I need to start trouble shooting this?

Or is it because the dns (A record) change is still propagating?

Thanks
Steve

Steve,

I am seeing it correctly, flush your caché and the DNS of your system and try again.

Seeing the same site on both. Wait a bit more. Different ISPs take different time to propagate the changes.

Yeah, both URL's looks the same.

www is an alias of main domain, you can look in your DNS www as a cname pointing to the main domain.com

It looks like the A records are still propogating.

And 74.52.119.x looks suspicously like a HostGator IP address

Hello,

Both are same here.. Flush your system DNS. IF it didn't work, try with some other ISP.
