Changes in store admin not showing up on my site

There are many ways that making changes in the store's admin area do not show up on the store. Most likely, the store admin is connected to an old website and the store is connected to the new one. This could happen if the site has been moved from one host to another or one domain to another.

Open a command window
Enter in:
ipconfig  /flushdns
You should get a message saying the DNS was successfully flushed (i.e. cleared)
