When I first created my site, all the pages were without the www. htt*p://mysite.com as opposed to htt*p://www.mysite.com.

Now, when I upload the site ad you visit mysite.com the changes are there. However, if you use the address www.mysite.com, the changes are not there. Eventually they kick in but I want to fix this.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Do you mean using a URL with the "www" for the new pages doesan't work at first, but starts to work later?

Hi,

No, my pages are uploaded without the www.

If you use www in the web address, it does not reflect the changes until a couple of hours later.

No, my pages are uploaded without the www.

I'm still not 100% sure I'm following you.

You will be uploading a page (e.g. widgets.html) to your website via an FTP server.

That page should then be accesible by either:-

ww*w.yourdomain.com/widgets.html

or

yourdomain.com/widgets.html

...depending on how the webserver is set up.

"www." is a subdomain. For both formats of URL to work, you will need to 301 redirect one to the other. That may be in place, although if it is why it isn't working instantly I can't figure out.

Are you sure the old page is not just cached in your browser?
