the server is back and it's all okay now. i just need to wait for the new IP to propagate.
you can see that the namecheap DNS provider has the right one, but it hasn't made it to e.g. google yet.
in other words, everything's okay. the server's working fine. all we need to do now is wait for the DNS stuff to come through.
