Have you guys tried accessing by using the IP address? Just type 96.30.15.148 into your browser.

Also, try flushing your DNS cache:

Weirdly enough, that takes me to an Apache web server default page although gatewayredbirds.com works fine for me. Is there some kind of strange DNS configuration on this server?

I'll see if I can change that.

Hmm. I guess I should have tested that myself, as it sends me there too. The hosting company has it setup to redirect traffic to the main site to the forum folder, and I guess it's only setup for the hostname and not IP.

Their DNS servers at work might be on a delay or still have the old hosting info cached or something. Hopefully a DNS flush on their local machine will help.

Why was the server changed?

For me, I'd say pretty seamless though. Didn't know it was coming, didn't know it happened, and can't tell the difference now that I know it happened.

I did the dns flush and still it doesn't work. As karp said its acting as if grb doesn't even exist. I am perplexed by this.

Can you ping the IP address?

Have you stacked your 32mb virtual memory cache?
