comment Is it possible to clear DNS cache globally?
It's just that you would need to redirect to an IP address (as you suggest), rather than a domain name (since that is already cached by the client; pointing to the wrong IP). A shared server (one IP address for multiple websites) requires the domain name in order to resolve to the required website. ?

Presumably you would only be able to implement the redirect if you are not on a shared server?

How long has it been since you switched?

comment Tooltips in Chrome do not work
That Amazon example has both a JavaScript "tooltip/popup" and an HTML tooltip and sometimes the JS tooltip takes priority... Just as another quick test, if you hover over the "share" link above do you (or not) see the text "short permalink to this question"?

comment How to run OpenDNS updater silently
Curious... I never get notified that the IP address was updated. Only if I manually check the "IP updates history" can I see when it changed (and I'm not set to run hidden).

comment Unable to resolve localhost, 127.0.0.1 or local IP address?
@Darius: In fact I quickly setup a mylocalhost pointing to the same site (see question update) and this works OK. DirectoryIndex is setup to serve default files. (But localhost actually results in the browser trying to resolve it!?)

comment Unable to resolve localhost, 127.0.0.1 or local IP address?
@Darius: Nothing meaningful is reported by the browser, simply "This webpage is not available" (in Opera, and similar messages in other browsers). Yes, localhost should be serving files (the default XAMPP welcome message - which I did see from localhost when it was first installed). Bizarrely localhost/index.html does work (this is just an "It Works" message) and now localhost/xampp has started working again, as well as any localhost/XXX URL. But the bare localhost (or 127.0.0.1) does not.
