    I am using Hostgator and FTP Pro to update my websites.

    Upon uploading an updated index.html, or any other html file, there is always a delay of several minutes before the site is actually updated.

    Does anyone know how to fix this so that the site updates immediately?

    Thanks.

    Do you delete your caches and cookies?

    That worked for me. I don't know that my site's visitors will know to do that, though.

    Thanks.

    You could use a no cache tag to always show an uncached view of your site.

    I've never noticed any delay with HostGator. I use Dreamweaver for FTP, and after editing files, I can see the changes immediately. I think that's due to my browser settings though. If your browser is set to update automatically, never, scheduled, etc., then you may see a delay. I think a no cache tag would fix it though.

    Code:
     
    <META Http-Equiv="Cache-Control" Content="no-cache">
    <META Http-Equiv="Pragma" Content="no-cache">
    <META Http-Equiv="Expires" Content="0"> 
    
    .

    If you hold now shift f5 it should force your browser to request a new copy from the server rather than using a local cached copy.
