Why am I still seeing my old page after upload?

Changes to your site should take place immediately after you have uploaded your files. To make sure you can see the latest web pages which you just uploaded, you must update your browser's settings. Any delay in displaying the new updates is either a result of unsuccessful publishing, or caching.

First, make sure you uploaded your files into your public_html folder. You can check to see if your files have been successfully uploaded by logging directly into your account using FTP with your username and password. Your remote directory will be displayed, and you can verify that your files have been uploaded successfully - IMPORTANT! Check that the files are in the correct directory (public_html).

Second, It is always good idea to refresh or clear the cache on your browser when making changes to your website.

Follow the instructions here on how to clear cache in Firefox. You can read more about clearing Firefox history and cache here.
Follow the instructions here on how to clear cache in Chrome.  Another great article to help you clear your cache in Chrome is this one: https://vpnstreamer.com.au/delete-google-search-history/

If you are using Safari, click on the Safari drop-down menu, then select empty cache. Then click on empty.

If you are using Internet Explorer, go to Tools Internet Options > Browsing History > Settings

Under Check for newer version of stored pages:
Make sure you check "Every time I visit the webpage"
