    Ghost Site
    I am curious as to how this happens...

    Some months ago I was using Host #1 to host a Zencart Store.....I was not pleased so I closed the Zencart Store with Host #1.

    I build this store again on Host #2 using Prestashop Shopping cart.

    Everything was done using the same domain name.

    Occasionally when I sign in to My Store, expecting to see the Prestashop version, I get the old Zencart store in complete working order. I clear my computer and the Prestashop appears.........A few days later the scene repeats itself..............

    Where did this bugger hide??

    DNS

    The DNS has not flushed from the old server...

    Shared or Dedicated server?

    Both accounts .....shared----reseller......

    It has been several months .....Actually a third version of this shop was spaced between Host #1 and Host #2 with an entirely different Host...say Host #3

    Do a traceroute:

    Traceroute, Ping, Domain Name Server (DNS) Lookup, WHOIS

    You should see the other servers DNS showing up.

    Do you have WHM in your reseller accounts? If so, you may be able to go into "Delete a DNS Zone" on the hosting where the "ghost" account resides and delete the domain from the server. If not, check to see if you have removed the account fully from that reseller plan...

    Thanks for your help.

    So far everything looks as it should.

    I will look into the WHM for both hosts tonight to see if anything is out of place there.

    Finally caught the site as it was misbehaving........Ran all of the tests offered here...........Every test read "Can not find server"
