    How long does it take for these things to cycle after changes are made?

    My host did something to their DNS server and I can't see my site, get my e-mail or FTP. Other sites in my directory on the same server work for me right now: they use different DNS servers, confirmed by a Whois.

    I would change DNS servers, but a whois reveals the DNS servers for my control panel login URL are the same as the site that doesn't work.

    I posted the URL to another forum and I get 50-50 yes I can see it/no I can't see it.

    Again, how long does it take for updated DNS servers to make it around the world and into my home?

    How long has it been? If longer than Haiko suggested you might want to call your isp and ask them to dump their cache.

    Well, that means 24-48 more hours of "sitting in the dark".

    All I want are my log files.

    If you know the correct IP address, you can configure it in your "hosts" file.

    My domain passed both tests, the problem is on my end.

    Thanks a bunch for those addresses!

    I always clear my browser cache and then go to my command prompt and type "ipconfig /flushdns". This won't help anything at the ISP level but will make sure you are seeing your ISP's latest DNS records.

    I imagine you have resolved your issue by now but maybe my 2 cents will help someone else...
