      That is odd. Have you verified that the nameservers are correct (pointing to the right server)? If they are, and you have recently changed them (within 24 hours) then this is most likely DNS propagation (which is applying to changes globally which can take up to 24 hours).

      If not, I recommend creating a support ticket so they can look into this for you.
