I had my personal site at freehostia and now i have shifted to some other server. It has been close to a week, and ofcourse as the NameServers changed for the new host, i made the required changes with domain-register-company, for my domain.
Now when i try open to my site, at times it open the new hosted-site, at times it open the 404 page on the old site.
I think 1 week, say even 4 days is a lot of time for DNS propagation to happen. Is this a strange behaviour.
When i open the site from the IP address it opens, but when i open the site with a domain-name, at times it open, and at times it doesnot. Any clue?
I tried with two of my friends, who have never visited my site, so no dns cache on his machine, it opened for one, and didnot open for the other. thanks

I donot understand what is this 25%, why is it not 100% or 50%
dns1.freehostia.com and dns2.freehostia.com were old servers. ns1.softuff.com and ns2.softuff.com are new servers.
