3Essentials - Your site IP has been changed

If you are reaching this page, your site has recently had it's IP changed due to a DDOS attack at the hosting provider.  Because a change in IP address takes time to propagate, your site is still resolving to the old IP, hence loading this page.  

You may be able to clear the condition using the following steps to purge cached DNS information on your computer.  If these steps do not work, you will likely have to wait for the normal DNS propagation delay which is generally 24 hours from the time your IP address was changed, which would be approximately 04/17/2013 0200 EDT. 

If you host your own DNS, and you have your site resolving to the old IP of 72.249.5.18, please contact your hosting support and request what your new IP address is, and update your DNS to that new IP address.
