HTML File Naming

  • HTML has specific rules that must be followed for naming files, folders, images, etc. within your website
  • Because a web server is responsible for providing web pages, the server determines how pages should be named and what specific rules should be followed
  • This course will always follow best practices, just be aware that best practices can change over time
  • Best practices for file naming within a website:
    • No spaces
    • Lowercase names
    • Unix servers do not like upper case
    • You can use an underscore or dash but no other special characters
    • File extension, can use either one, .htm or .html
    • Be consistent across the entire web site
