Hi Daniel,

i can access http://www.lobowalk.com just fine, too.  this is a common
problem that often happens to folks when they move their DNS away from
their own dialup ISP.  your ISP apparently has not removed the name
service (the record in their DNS servers) they had setup for your site.
this is usally an oversight on their part.

you could try emailing their tech support address and tell them that
their DNS servers are no longer "authoritative" for your domain (that
just means that you have updated your WHOIS record top point to
different DNS servers, elsewhere) and ask them to remove your domain
from their DNS servers.

it might be helful to send them a copy of the newly updated WHOIS

if their nameserver is incorrectly advertising that it is still
authoritative for that domain name (as it sounds), this stale record
*will* continue to prevent anyone who is using their DNS servers (all
their dialup customers) from accessing your domain, until that record is
