Hello all, got a hosting question for the guru's.
basically, my client has some web hosting which is inadequate for his needs, at the moment he is just using the email supplied by the hosting supplier. At the moment, he has full control over the domain and email/webhosting. The domain is all pointed internally on this host.

What i need to do is route all web traffic to a different host, so what I have done is change the nameservers from his old one to the new web host. (the NS Records) then I parked the domain at the new host. The problem is that it is still loading the old website. the issue is that the A record is pointing to an IP address internally. What should this IP address be?

as a note, the client is not willing to move the domain registrar or his email.

Thanks

To anyone interested, I managed to solve my issue by purchasing an ip address for the external web hosting, then pointed all A name records to that IP and everything is fine.
