That is something your host does. We submit the new IP address for the site and then it 'propogates' to all the major server hubs. It's nothing you actually have to deal with. (Unless you hit the site by using an IP addy instead of www.thetradersden.org url, which I don't think anyone does.)

usually takes 24-72 hours max. till the ttl [time to live] runs out.
