Construction page is built. It immediately becomes visible on the net

How do I update my website and what is "Cache"? to Hosting Support Home
Updating your website is a three step process.
You need to download either the entire site or the pages you would like to update onto your own PC via FTP
Make the changes you wish to make by using either a program such as
Microsoft Frontage or an HTML Editor such as Homesite or if you know how to
write HTML Code, by using your Notepad and typing the code.
Upload the updated pages or the entire site back to the server via FTP
If you have done it right and your upload went OK, your changes take place
instantly. Sometimes, the changes may not be visible, in which case, you
should click "Refresh" or "Reload" button on your browser. This will avoid
showing the previous version of the page you are trying to view that is already
in your computer's memory rather than display what is on
This is called "Cache" and it simply means your computer stores the pages as
you surf the web and when you try to display the same page, it just recalls
it from its Cache rather than show what is on the server. If you have made
changes in the mean time, you may not see them unless you "Clear your cache"
by clicking "Refresh" or "Reload" button.
Another way to clear your cache, which may be necessary at times is to go
into the "Internet Options" in your browser and select "Clear Cache" or
"Delete Temporary files" option. This deletes all the pages that have been
cached in your PC.

What is FTP and how to use FTP? to Hosting Support Home
The process by which files are transferred to the web server is called "FTP"
(File Transport Protocol). You have unlimited access via FTP 24-hours a day/7 days a week with Amazia.
As such, you can create and maintain your web pages on your own computer and
upload files to your web site at your leisure.
Internet providers such as AOL, Compuserve, and Prodigy may have a built-in
FTP interface. If you have a PPP internet account and need an FTP program,
you can download software for either PC or Mac below. PC users
should download WinZip if you do not already have a program to
extract .zip files.

visibility and bring more visitors to your site!
Another functionality comes from listing your domain name with search
engines relevant to your keywords. This means that you can register as many
web addresses as you wish relevant to your keywords and have them all point
to your main website thus generating traffic through obtaining high rankings
