The DNS is what takes the 'human readable' domain name and 'maps' (converts) it to a 'machine readable' IP Address... In Other Words: To change IP Addresses the DNS must change. There's no way around it. When someone requests a domain name the IP Address is requested from the DNS System. To change IP Addresses the DNS must be updated to 'map' the correct domain name to the correct IP Address, so the DNS must be changed from saying example.com is at 18.104.22.168 to saying example.com is at 22.214.171.1246.

If all you changed was your IP address it shouldn't have caused any problem in routing dns back to you.
It's been a long time since I've considered this problem so this might not even be true BUT I'll suggest that perhaps his new IP address belonged to a previous owner that was involved in shady practices? I really don't think that's it and some other thing is causing your problem but I'll suggest it if you're convinced the problem is the IP change. Good luck.
