I have the domain My ISP who set up the domain moved this domain onto new servers recently. Since then, no longer maps onto my forums.

What do I need to do to put this right again?

That domain is not using our DNS servers it is using:


you need to either switch to our dns servers:

or to make the domains ip address:

using the registrars DNS servers.
Either of these steps are done with the registrars.

Thank you for your quick response. It looks like my ISP took a very old version of my club site and put it onto their new servers, and didn't keep the old DNS records.

All updated now, so just waiting for everything to propagate through. Thanks!

Oh, and 10 donated to the server appeal.

thank you

OK. Progress of sorts - now when I go to, it goes to and shows the error message:

Not Found

The requested URL /index.php was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

We need to clear up the facts here.

I see

is your site and that thinks

should be the forum.

Our records state though that: should be the forum.

Which is right?
MikeBoxwell is our old website from donkeys years ago, that our old ISP managed to resurrect from god-knows where when they moved the domain onto their new server. They deny anything has changed.  

I've changed the DNS settings for both and, so hopefully these should all propagate through to the right place eventually.

Am I just being too impatient?
