My website (apache) Request Time Out. But ping is good..


I setting up my webserver with apache on my Centos 5.5. I have some problem need to understand. I Register my domain with . And I only do forwarding DNS from godaddy "Domain Management". When i open the address in a browser, it taking a long time to show the web page. And then it goes "request not found". I try to open the website from my another computer but with different ISP it's working. And then I try again after a few minutes to my current ISP, it's working now. When I can't see my website, I try to do ping to example, "ping", "ping". But it's working fine. And the time for ping showing a short time. How can I check which problem I have here ? And how can I resolve it ?
Thank you for advanced.

ping first looks for the hostname in /etc/hosts and if it finds it there is does not use a dns to resolve the hostname to the ip address. I guess that's the reason ping works regardless if you can visit your site.
The fact that one isp can't resolve your host while the other can, could be that the domain data is not yet propagated.
To check your dns settings, put your domain name here and see if it reports any error
