    I have just sold a site which comprises of 2 domains, 1 being made of html static pages (.com) and the other a vbulletin forum for the .com (on .net).

    My hosting is with Godaddy (shared Linux).

    I changed the details on the domain registration (whois details) into the new owners name, he has received them.

    My problem is that even though the sites content is still on my host/server, I cannot access it. When I goto the domains, I see a GoDaddy advert page and when trying to access via FTP, the connection is refused.

    Kinda confused about this. What needs to be done to sort this out?

    Many thanks!

    the domain isn't pointing at your server anymore.

    so you changed the nameservers before transferring the sites? :rofl:
    login in your ftp with an ip not the domain.

    ping your old nameserver and get the ip, then log in
