I'm a noob to this stuff and I was wondering why it took so long to update my website after I uploaded them, and someone said to diable caching.

How do I do this?

Any help appriciated, thanks.

1. What website?
2. Referring to new domains?

You have access to the server?

Please be more specific so someone can better understand your problems.

It is standard procedure whenever editing any web site to clear your web browser
cache immediately after uploading any new content and refresh the page.

If you don't do that, then you yourself won't see the changes you made while
the rest of the world can view the changes just fine without any problems!

This is because your computer shows you a duplicate copy of the web site
saved and stored on your own computer at home from a previous session
instead of connecting to the actual real web site on the internet.

When you clear your web browser cache, you force your web browser to
connect to the real web site and show what is really there instead
of using old saved data from your own computer.

If your isp , or host , or a proxy you/your customers are using `affects` caching of results, when your page(s) change often (or you use dynamic content creation, like php ) then you may want to utilize mod_expires / or / and mod headers the set page expiry / headers so that the pages will not get cached.

This will cause most good browsers to not cache pages aswell as most up-stream caches......

However, this may cause additional bandwidth overheads.
