DNS driving me crazy

 10:46 am on Nov 28, 2007 (gmt 0)

At the moment i have abc.com and zyx.com for example, now abc.com has the A record and MX records which are fine and zyx.com (which did initialy have an A record) has been changed to just forward to abc.com but it does not appear to be working correctly, i removed the A record from zyx.com and set up web forwarding to the root of abc.com not an index page or anything.

If i check the dns records it shows what i would expect but still loads zyx.com

What i dont understand is when i use forwarding with a 3rd domain to page within abc.com it work perfectly.

could it just be a case of it taking longer than usual to update?

The funny thing is [xyz.com...] does not forward properly to abc.com but [xyz.com...] does. i dont understand that.

I have thought of some ways to rectify this.

rewritecond %{http_host} ^(www.the-forwarding-domain\.com) [NC]
RewriteRule (.*) [the-proper-domain.co.uk...] [R=301,L]

to the htaaccess

2. Create a google webmaster account for the forwarding domain and remove the pages that are indexed an deny further access

3 block the spider using the robots.txt
