[SOLVED] Old site still loading even after deletion

I had this old site deployed using Gatsby on the domain named – jarmos.netlify.app. It’s been deleted a while ago & that same domain name was reassigned to this new site I deployed using Pelican. Yet the old site still loads when I visit the domain mentioned above. Why is it so?

Things I attempted in hopes of resolving the issue:

  • Cleared browser cache

  • A hard refresh with ctrl+Shift+R loads the new site but reverts back to the old one when I perform a soft refresh using Ctrl+R.

  • Redeployed this new Pelican site from scratch.

Some more info which might be helpful for you:

  • Site Name: jarmos

  • API ID: 2b1ebff7-c584-43c9-9296-277116a5729b

  • Last deploy performed on 2020-10-03T08:43:00Z

EDIT: The disucssion in this thread Deleting a Gatsby site: how do I get the browser to clear the cache? #15623 was helpful & my site works as its expected to.

Nice, thanks so much for sharing- will definitely help others who run into this issue in the future.
