Why am I still seeing my old page after upload?

Changes to your site should take place immediately after publishing. If you are making changes liveon the Internet using FrontPage, the changes should take place within seconds.

Any delay in displaying the new updates is either a result of unsuccessful publishing, or caching ata proxy server at your ISP or office - this means that you're seeing an old version of your site.You can check to see if your files have been successfully uploaded by logging directly into youraccount using FTP or FrontPage with your username and password. Your remote directory will be displayed, and you can verify that your files have been uploaded successfully - check that they're inthe correct directory (probably public_html).

It is always good idea to refresh or clear the cache on your browser when making changes to your website. However, you could also be viewing a cached version of your site thanks to your ISP or a proxy server at your office. ISPs cache (store copies of) sites on their proxy servers to save bandwidth and money. The same thing is often done on a small scale by businesses. Caches should be cleared every day - if the problem persists, contact your ISP or your network administrator and ask them to manually clear the cache for your site. Once this is done you should see the newly published site on our servers.
