we have this problem:
Our main page is located at:
In this "us" folder we have other pages too like contact, about us, products etc..
The site also contains the other folders like"uk", "ca", "de" (example:www.domainxy.com/de/indexp.php
) - but we want to keep those intact.
We would like our default page to be:
or even better www.domainxy.com/index.html
When we asked our programmer to do that he said that it can be done however there will be some performance drawback.
So what would the best way be to achieve this (Apache, htaccess)?
Of course we are looking for a permanent redirection here (for the pages in the "us" folder only).
We heard that from the seo perspective it would be more preferable to have our main default page under our main domain (not in the folder).
