It’s set in DNS, update the DNS record for your community.

That’s down to the TTL of your DNS provider. The TTL is the “Time-to-live” which is the amount of time between a DNS update and it replicating out.

Some DNS providers have very low TTL of seconds or minutes. In those cases you can expect everything to be working quite quickly.

Others have a TTL of hours, seeing those changes replicate can take the best part of a day.

When you say ‘EC’ instance is this instance installed at Amazon?

Ok, which IP are you using? The server IP? How are you publishing it? Why did it change?
