    Lightbulb Different kinds of URL navigating options in a website

    Hey!

    Id like to know how the following is done:

    if the site address is such as : www.testsite.com
    and i browse the site forward usually the url's are as following:
    www.testsite.com/about.html, www.testsite.com/members.html, etc...

    but what I want to know is, how do they do this to show the page:
    www.testsite.com/about/ , www.testsite.com/members/

    those are folders? folders having their own index.html? I tried to find such cause
    if you type index.html, index.php etc... you would see the same page as well
    but I couldnt find the index-file. What technique is this? Are there many more
    techniques to navigate through a site like this? If there are, could someone
    put an example of those =)?

    For example: navigating through GET is like this: www.testsite.com/?page=1

    Thanks in advance

    Do a search for mod_rewrite or “pretty URLs”. Usually it’s done in an .htaccess file.
