Launched your new website but still seeing the old one? Changed hosts and now seeing “Page Not Found” errors? Before you worry, try clearing your browser and DNS cache–some like to hold on to the past.
Clearing Your Browser Cache
Different browsers and versions have different methods, but here’s a good resource that stays pretty much up-to-date: http://www.refreshyourcache.com/en/home/
Clearing Your Computer’s DNS Cache
If your new site resides on a new server (e.g., you’ve changed hosts, or moved from a shared server to a VPS), you’ll need to clear your computer’s DNS cache as well. The folks at cPanel have easy-to-follow instructions: https://docs.cpanel.net/display/CKB/How+To+Clear+Your+DNS+Cache
Clearing your Windows 10 DNS Cache
Clearing your OS X El Capitan DNS Cache
Still not seeing the new site? It could be that the DNS hasn’t fully propagated yet (it can take up to 72 hours). To check the progress of your propagation, enter your domain name at www.whatsmydns.net.
