Old site opening on your computer

This happens to me alot, some time i was waiting for result, refreshing site again and again but my pc is showing  old content of site while it is updated and others can see new version of site.

or

a specific site is not opening on your pc but it is opening on other pcs this is just due to issue of cache version of DNS or of site content. Modern browsers save cache version of site to deliver it again at fast speed, in same way windows cache dns address so that website access speed is high also PTCL servers are doing this as they resolve a host they will resolve again after a specific time but it will gives you pain if you need urgent content from a site, this can be correct by usin OPENDNS dns servers so that you can redirect to new version of site.

you have to set opendns setting in your ethernet connection.Steps are different for each Windows version.
