How Long Before My Website Will Show my Updates?

I recently finished the How to Build a Website track led by Nick. I uploaded my files via Cyberduck, and my site updated immediately after the first upload. Since I uploaded the first time, I have made some changes to my code. I uploaded the new files via Cyberduck, but my site pages aren't updating. Does it take a while for the site to update after the initial upload? I'm using Chrome and I have cleared my cache. Please advise.

Thank you!

Double check with the hosting company. Depending on you package and plan, some update immediately, others take longer. Make sure the code you change is uploaded correctly on the hosting site.

By chance did you sign up for CloudFlare through your host? If so you'll want to go into development mode. You might also also try to force reload the page to clear the browser cache, or try incognito mode.

Thanks for the help guys. I used webhostingforstudents.com just like Nick Pettit shows in the video. I can't seem to find my answer on their site but I did submit a ticket through their site as well.
