Hi Guys

I am having a problem with a site i am coding.

I am using this code for my home button:

HTML Code:
<a href="http://www.sametrology.co.za">HOME</a>
But for some reasons after i have uplaoded the files to the webserver the homepage does not rolaod (takes very long time) if you hit the refresh button or if you view other pages and come back to the home page. All other page are very fast!!

I dont know if this is happening to multiple users on different machines too or even if multiple users can veiw the site?

My hosting support says i should use:

HTML Code:
<a href="index.php">HOME</a>
But i dont want the URL to have index.php

Can someone please help me? I am a bit lost because this has never happened with other hosts or infact the same host with another domian.

I didnt know weather to post in web hosting or HTML

Thanks
