My webpage won't update unless I hit the refresh button.

Not exactly sure how to phrase this question, cause I don't know the lingo, but here goes. How do I make it so a browser automatically updates my web-page.

I have a web page that I've made using basic html and css on notepad. It's nothing fancy.
Now, recently I've updated some of the content. For example, the page used to say "we sell 1, 2, and 3." After I updated the page (uploading the files at HostGator), it should say "we sell 1, 2, 3 and 4."
However, when I type the page into my browser, it still says "we sell 1, 2, and 3." If I hit the refresh button, though, the page changes to the updated "we sell 1, 2, 3, and 4."
What html do I need to add so that browsers automatically refresh the page, so that I don't have folks checking back to the page looking for updates and not finding them cause their browser is just loading from memory?
Does this make sense?
