looking to remove file extension on my website. Sitebuilder doesn't allow me to upload an .htaccess file. Can this be done in homestead?

Hello,

Renaming files will need to be done directly from your computer. There is no option to rename it from your Homestead account.

Michelle, Thanks for your response.  I don't think this is a full help.  We are trying to make our website more user friendly and allow users to not have to add ".html" to the web address.  For example, instead of "websitename/about.html" it would be "websitename/about"

Is this possible with homestead?  Thanks.

Apologizes. No, unfortunately there is not way to remove the .html extension with Sitebuilder plus sites. That is a function that is available in WebsiteBuilder, our new software.
