In this lecture, our instructor Candyce Mairs explains HTML File Naming and the important of a site's structure--how files and folders interact within it, and the importance of having a consistent file naming standard.
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:
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
