    Ever heard of TTL?
    Stands for Time To Live.
    It indicates for what period of time DNS-servers are allowed to cache DNS entries.
    From your description I'd say the TTL is not over yet and all DNS servers are still using their cache to answer your DNS query.

    Just be patient, It'll happen

    Reboot your PC.

    If that doesn't help, go to the command prompt (windows) and type

    Code:
    ipconfig /flush-dns
    If that doesn't help just sit back and stop whining; these things happen.
