How to Choose the Right Nomenclature for Folders

If you create your website yourself, you will likely create subfolders to organize your work. Creating a folder is a task you have probably already performed. For instance, if you create a folder to store pictures of your favorite animals, you will likely call the folder 'favorite animals'. This approach is valid in Windows, but if you create folders in this fashion in public_html, the browser will display the address this way: http://www.yourdomain.com/favorite%20animals.

This is caused by the fact that browsers do not support spaces in web addresses, so they replace them by %20.

To avoid this issue, please use folder names that do not include spaces, such as 'favorite_animals'.
