>From Stack Overflow:

"There's no guaranteed way to force the user to clear the DNS cache, and it is often done by their ISP on top of their OS. It shouldn't take more than 24 hours for the updated DNS to propagate. Your best option is to make the transition seamless to the user by using something like mod_proxy with Apache to create a reverse proxy to your new server. That would cause all queries to the old server to still return the proper results and after a few days you would be free to remove the reverse proxy."

Another way is to simple create a redirect on the old page.

I had the DNS caching problem in one project. We had to resort to the "?" trick. Without it, different computers or browsers would all load the older file, which usually didn't update for 24 hours.
