How long does it take for a webhost to refresh website?
When you upload a new version of your website, how long does it usually take for a webhost to update? So, when you go to your webpage, how long does it take that the new version is there?
I am with Synhosting, and I uploaded a new version of my webpage eleven hours ago, and I still see my old website there.
Can anyone fill me in, please, if this is within the normal range?
Normally on most hosts your update takes effect immediately because you are updating the live content. If Synhosting has some sort of load balanced environment they might take longer to move your changes across the servers. However that is usually not the case, most hosts would use a SAN and again your change will be immediate. Are you sure you editing the right content?

Reason: typo and after thought
it should take effect immediately. Have you cleared your cache on your browser?
You are not seeing the new changes most likely due to your browser cache, not because of your web host. The changes take affect immediately on the server.

Try refreshing the page with CTRL + F5 instead of just F5.
I emptied the cache.
There's still the old website. Now it's seventeen hours that I uploaded the update.
I guess I'll write a trouble ticket.
Is it possible that you didn't load the right file to the right place?
I'm guessing you uploaded it to the wrong area.

That's what I would think as well. It should be absolutely immediate, if not less

I received a reply from synhosting.
Yes, the files landed in the wrong place, for some reason.
The synhosting representative said, he moved the files for me.
But I went to my site, and it's still the old site.
I'll try uploading it again. I'm using Fetch, and it shouldn't cause any trouble.
Thanks for the replies.
This is weird.
I have the new site on my desktop. When I click on index, the new site opens.
I have uploaded the new site to the server. But it still loads the old website.
Do I have to delete the old website in order to get the new one? I though a newer file would always overwrite the old file, or at least take the number 1 spot?
I deleted the old site, and the new site is still there.
But when I try to load my site, I get a "not found" message, even though the site file is there.
I can't make it work.
After uploading the new site again, I only get an "index of/" message instead of my site.
It showed my old website, an even older website, and my new website.
I deleted the two older website from the server, and when I go to my address, I still get an "index of/", this time called "parental directory" and "mysite". If I click on "mysite", my new site loads.
But why doesn't it load right away? Why does it show me that index?
What am I doing wrong here?

Are you sure there's a file called index.html or index.htm in there?
