Host names not working in Firefox, IE or Chrome

description

I've added new lines in the Hosts File Editor for a domain and IP however this domain will not show in either Firefox, IE or Chrome. Instead it shows page not found using the old version of the website on a different server. It does partially work in Safari (i.e. I can see the development site but it tends to get buggy after a while).

I've cleared the browsing history, cleared the cache and even completely uninstalled Chrome and reinstalled again to see if that would work but no joy.

Any ideas why I can't see the site on the IP address I've stated that it's on?

Did you close all browser windows and relaunch? Browsers cache DNS data.

Sorry ignore my last comment, I didn't see this, "I've cleared the browsing history, cleared the cache and even completely uninstalled Chrome and reinstalled again to see if that would work but no joy."

Did you check the checkbox next to your entry? I missed this as well.
