Web pages delivered differently by different servers

Here are to URLs that address the same set of web pages. The first is hosted on the work in progress section of my own website hosted by 123-reg; the second is hosted on its ultimate destination with BT.

www.wincy.co.uk/wip/index2.php
www.prestigebusinessconsultants.co.uk/index2.php

As one navigates from page to page on the first, the transition is seamless, as indeed it should be. When one navigates from page to page on the site as hosted by BT however the page background fills the entire screen before the new page's content appears. Does anyone know why this happens on the BT server, please, and what can be done to remedy it?

They work the same for me. Only thing is, the second host is somewhat slower. This might be causing your issues.

Thanks for responding Cyberstalker, but the case is actually the opposite of what you say. I've done website speed tests on both urls and the load time on pages on the first are actually more than double load times on the same pages on the second url. This is what is baffling me. Although the first site is loading far more slowly than the second, the transition from page to page is seamless on that site whereas there is a clear and unwelcome break and re-write between pages on the second and faster-loading site.

Well, the only difference I see is that the second server seems to be more inclined to keep the connection open than the first. So the behavior you are describing may be caused by the overhead of setting up a new connection.

I don't get that behavior. It may be due to the specific browser you are using (I tested Firefox, Chrome and opera) or the connection speed where you are.

The only way to reliably solve this is to use AJAX to load the page. This way you fetch the whole content first and then put it in the page.
