    Hello. I migrated a site http://embassydemo.com from one HostGator plan to another similar business plan with a dedicated IP. There are subdomains for London, Beijing, Hanoi, Phnom Penh, and Washington. London and Hanoi are not working and the other 3 are fine. Plus the main site Shangri-La is fine. FF error message is:
    Firefox can't find the server at london.embassydemo.com
    There is no domain mapping involved. The site was running nicely for 18 months before I moved it. I'm grateful for your assistance. Thank You. Regards - Mal

    I'll try something else and repost the question after the holiday. I guess I could delete the sites that are not working and manually re-install them.

  3. Don't repost. Please. It makes it harder for everyone.

    Since you just migrated it implies that your DNS got a little goofed. Ask HostGator to fix your DNS for you, and that it decided to forget one of your sites. If you were using wildcard redirects for subdomains, they may need to edit something server side.

    Sorry - I thought this might have slipped through the cracks. Well I switched the nameservers back to the original location - looked around to see if there was anything that I missed - and I switched back to my new location and everything worked. So yeah, I'm glad it's working now. So even 2 days after switching nameservers for the original move the DNS was maybe still not propagated properly or something weird that maybe the host support could have found but I'm glad everything is running like a champ just in time for the holidays!

    OK Thanks for your help Mika and have a great holiday!!
    (This help system would be priceless if the database was fully searchable.)
