I have a web page that has several different pages on it.  I have seen on tv for example a site that is www.whaterver.com/tv  They don't have the .htm or .html extensions.  

When I  send someone my site url and I don't want them to have to go through all kinds of steps to get there.  I just want them to be able to type www.whatever.com/tv and not have to deal with all that extra extensions like .htm or .html etc.

THanks Brian

well you need to configure your Web Server for that.
Web Server can read and look for default document.

say index.html is the default page for your server, just drop in/rename the tv.html to index.html and whatever.com/tv will point to that index page in tv directory automatically.

Right, the 'tv' in your example is a folder, not a document.  When you browse to the folder 'tv' by going to www.whatever.com/tv, it will display the file (something like index.html as adilkhan suggested) that the web server is configured to recognize as the correct default document name for that website.

It's the same as going to www.domain.com.  You're acually seeing the default document in the website's root folder - www.domain.com/index.html - but only the domain, representing the root folder of the website, shows up in your address bar.

The default web page to any folder is depending on your server type
its on of tow
index.htm  index.html   index.asp               index.php  or
defult.htm            defult.html           defult.asp          defult.php
contact ur server administarator and ask him what type is the server to know waht kind of page u need to use then make a page with this name in each folder u have and this will be the defualt page of the server
