I changed the nameservers of my website to point to the new host, but it's still opening from the old ip even after 3-4 hours. How can I access my website from the new host?

Usually web propagation takes 48-72 hours. That's why your website is still pointing to the old ip address. If you want to access website from new ip, you need to do some changes on your machine. The changes will not impact web propagation speed, it will just allow you to access the new ip.

Open C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts in notepad (or any editor) as administrator and add xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx example.com ​where xxx represents your new ip.
