Page Names

When creating web pages for your website there are a number of issue regarding page names that you should observe.

  1. Ensure that all pages and images end in a valid file extension. Below is a table of vaild file types and extensions.

    File Type Extension
    Web Page .html, .htm, .html
    GIF Image .gif
    JPEG Image .jpg
    Acrobat File .pdf
  2. Linux servers are case sensitive whereas windows PC's are not. Therefore, whilst index.htm and Index.htm would be seen as identical filenames on a Windows PC, they are seen as two different files on our servers. We therefore recommend that you only use lowercase characters. We would also recomment that you only use the characters "a-z", "0-9", "-" (hyphen) and "_" (underscore). NEVER use a space, full stop, a forward slash (/) or a backslash (\).
  3. Every website has a homepage. In order for a web server to recognise your homepage it must have a specific name. The available names which our servers will recognise are index.html, index.htm or index.shtml.
