    The same thing happened to me. I just had to wait. When I changed hosting, for a short period, I would get two different pages (old and new hosting) depending on where I accessed the page from.

    I remember it happening once when I first set it up too, but I just restarted my router and it worked. Tried that a few times and it hasn't worked..

    How long did it take for it to change for you?

    I'm not sure - 24 hours? I believe it varies depending on how often the nameservers of your hosting company updates.

    It's not the name servers - the domains have the same NS records and when queried return the same IP address.
    This is not a DNS issue but something the hosting company need to change in their web server config - the host header information is currently pointing "adrian-thomas.com" to a default, separate virtual server instead of being an alias for the existing virtual server "ddsecurity.org".

    It may be their strange way of administering things - set the server up and then modify it, but it could be that they misunderstood and created a new virtual server instead of just adding the names to the existing one.

    Querying my DNS server for "ddsecurity.org" NS records, then querying the name server for the A record of the domain:
    nslookup
    > set type=ns
    > ddsecurity.org
    Non-authoritative answer:
    ddsecurity.org nameserver = ns4.ikhost.net
    ddsecurity.org nameserver = ns3.ikhost.net
    > server ns4.ikhost.net
    Default Server: ns4.ikhost.net
    Address: 72.20.9.34

    > set type=a
    > ddsecurity.org
    Server: ns4.ikhost.net
    Address: 72.20.9.34

    Name: ddsecurity.org
    Address: 72.20.9.36
    Now doing the same for "adrian-thomas.com":
    nslookup
    > set type=ns
    > adrian-thomas.com
    Non-authoritative answer:
    adrian-thomas.com nameserver = ns4.ikhost.net
    adrian-thomas.com nameserver = ns3.ikhost.net
    > server ns4.ikhost.net
    Default Server: ns4.ikhost.net
    Address: 72.20.9.34

    > set type=a
    > adrian-thomas.com
    Server: ns4.ikhost.net
    Address: 72.20.9.34

    Name: adrian-thomas.com
    Address: 72.20.9.36
    And if you visit http://72.20.9.36/ you get the message that this is a hosting server and you have to type in the name so it knows which site you actually wanted to visit.
