Flushing Your Browser Cache
When a website is updated, you may not see the changes immediately due to caching and DNS propagation. To bypass these issues and view the latest version that others see, you may need to clear your browser cache.
When Flushing isn't Enough
Sometimes clearing the browser cache alone may not be enough. In such cases, consider employing alternative methods like using incognito mode, adding a URL parameter, or accessing the site through a different device and network.
Switch to Incognito Mode
Open a new incognito/private window in your browser to prevent it from using cached data. Press Ctrl+Shift+N (Windows/Linux) or Cmd+Shift+N (Mac) for Chrome, Firefox, or Safari, and Ctrl+Shift+P (Windows) or Cmd+Shift+P (Mac) for Microsoft Edge.
Add a URL parameter
Add a unique parameter to the end of the URL (e.g., " ?nocache=123 " to force the browser to request the latest version from the server. Example: mywebpage.com/?nocache=123
Use a Different Network or Device
Access your website from a different device (such as a smartphone, tablet, or another computer) and use a different Wi-Fi network, cellular data, or a VPN to change your IP address.
By using these alternatives, you can bypass caching and DNS propagation delays, ensuring that you see the most recent version of your website that is visible to the rest of the world. Remember to use a unique number or timestamp each time you want to bypass the cache with the URL parameter.
