DNS updated but still showing the old IP address

Hello, I migrated from Hostgator to Vultr and updated my DNS in Cloudflare, but when I ping my site using Windows console it shows me my old IP address, which is weird because I can access my site with the new IP address.

How can I resolve this?

If you’re referring to your “Old” Cloudflare IP address for your site, that’s not going to change. The front end (Cloudflare) doesn’t change, as it’s a proxy to the back end (your origin server) that did change.

Ahh, what a relief! so basically even if I migrate to another server the IP address would still the same?
Thanks for clarifying this as I spent the whole day searching!

If it is :orange:, yes. If it is :grey:, it should update.
