Did you remove the old domain from the old host? Also keep in mind that it can take up to a day or two for some domain hosts to update. More details would help.

I have a similar problem too. I used to have a domain with ipage hosting and the domain got expired. Now someone else bought it but the content was still showing up when it was with me.

Removed the domain from ipage, deleted the files in ipage too but no luck. Please help me how to make sure that my content doesn’t appear on the domain.

Tried reaching the new owner of the domain but no luck too.

Thank you,

check from pingdom test. see you see the new files from there or not.

I am facing the same problem with my domain

What to do?

  • Hi there @harshal,

    When I look up your domain name, it is pointing to a DO droplet, it looks like you aren’t serving any web content currently though. This is likely the reason why your domain isn’t working as expected.

And also I see that DigitalOcean is the new hosting provider for the domain. Tried reaching to you but no use.Ticket #03051118

Please remove the content from the domain. It is a result of 2 years hardwork and someone else is using it now.

Please understand and help me with this issue.
