Ok, I'm completely new to this and would really appreciate some help. I'm trying to remove the .html extension at the end of my site pages.
My pages currently looks like this:
and I want them to look like:
My hosting is on godaddy shared windows. Whenever I try to manually change it to "http://www.example.com/about-us", I get a 404 error. I have tried to use .htaccess with no success, can it be used on a windows based server? D:
Please let me know how to fix this problem and thanks in advance.
I used an extensionless structure on a former site but did it at a folder level instead.
another way to do this (probably what piatkow is referring to) is if you can specify the default directory index document such as index.html and create a directory structure with names similar to your original documents.
then refer the the "extensionless" document with a trailing slash, which makes it a directory url.
that way a request for /about-us/ is actually served the file located at /about-us/index.html
it's not an ideal solution, but it may be your only option if you have limited control.
