    Hi there. This is a problem that has been driving me absolutely insane in the last several days.

    So, I was asked to make a new website, which I did. Last Wednesday (feb. 2), the DNS information for that site was changed to the new server, so eventually the new page should have shown up. And, for the most part, everyone I know has said that it has. But, NOT for me! For some reason, my own computer STILL sees the old site, no matter what I do. It shows up in MIE and in Firefox.

    I've deleted all my temporary files, cookies, everything. That didn't work. So then I reformatted my entire hard drive. I got the new site for a day, butnow I open it up this afternoon, and I'm back to seeing the old one, while everyone else STILL sees the new one. HOW is this possible? What in the world can I do to fix it?

    Thanks for your help!

    normally I would say your just seeing cache - but .......

    try refresh but also hold down the (sorry cant remember which one ) Control or shift - that has worked for me refreshing from the server

    Probably a matter of the DNS server that your ISP uses. Some take an eon to update, and if they have to do a database restore, the old ones could have been replaced.

    You should talk to the ISP before you blame your system.

    Amusingly, my webspace provider suggested the same thing, and when I phone tech support of my ISP, they absolutely positively vehemontly refused that it was their problem. Even after arguing with 'em for a while.
