How to make a customized url for a html page

Website source:http://www.salefee.com/

I have a career section in my website which redirects to

http://www.salefee.com/index2.html


I want that that my url should look like
http://www.salefee.com/career
.
I don't want any
.html
suffix after my url. I have hosted this website using
www.godaddy.com


Can someone help me with the code. The website is made in html/css.Thanks in advance!!

Answer

Create a subdirectory /career/ in your web files directory, and then put the HTML file index.html in there.

index.html is the default file that will be returned by the server when the directory level is accessed by the browser.

Also, for SEO purposes, add a proper <link rel="canonical" href="/career"> tag in the page header.

Static blog engines like Jekyll or Pelican do it this way too.

There are more methods to achieve that, via Nginx settings or Apache's .htaccess, but since you are on Godaddy you probably need a simple solution.
