    Okay my sites are working and so are their e-mail servers Whoo Whooo
    Now my issue is my pages themselves I think and I am open to suggestions.
    on the top row I have .bmps for links to the other pages they sometimes take too long to download also if you go to the map click the map and then click say ocotal it takes too long to download each image
    now I have up to 512mbs upstream speed. Is this all in how I am designing my pages, My images are only 600x800 (1mega pixle) some are a little bit bigger. Now all of my files are in /web do I need to make another folder for my icons and another for my images? What can I do to speed this up?
    I am using 512m of memory and have a 906mhz proc.
    Any suggestions or do I need to just re-design my pages
    BTW my bit maps are only like 3-4kb each

    The folders where you put your images are not relevant for upload speed, they are just for organizing your files.

    To speed up your website, you must use another image format.

    For graphics like buttons or navigation bars, use either gif or png as image format. For photos and similar images, use jpg.

    You should never use bmp as image format for websites. BMP files are uncompressed and a windows file format which might cause trobles for poeple with MAC or linux to view your website.

    Thanks and my fotos are .jpegs and some of them seem to download real fast I guess the .bmps are what is slowing it down thanks So I need to try to change them Thanks

    One other detail. If I add something to my page, at home (on my network) MOST of the time I can see the new pages (instead of my error404) but out in the rest of the world I still see the old page OR I the now working link does not work. Any way to make it where my site is refreshed without having to refresh my own browser? Most of my viewers aren't going to think to do that.

    You could put this in the <head></head> section of your HTML files:

    <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" />
    <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="-1" />
    <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache" />

    Cool I knew there had to be a way

    Thanks I will try that I knew there had to be a way so that it wouldn't get cashed in everyone's browser.
