My website appears on my computer but not on others.

Recently my server provider transferred my website to a Go-Daddy server (three days ago). Now, I find my website appearing in good order in Google and Firefox on my laptop, but everywere else, including my other computers, I get an error message when I try to enter my website ( My DNS setting for Google are what they were before (the recommended settings). Is this Go-Daddy server issue, a DNS issue, or what?

Did you try

Did you try flushing your DNS cache? ipconfig /flushdns May not work, but takes all of a couple seconds to try.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
