    If it was /register/ (note end slash) yes it would be a folder (most likely).

    Otherwise, it is the use of Apache's mod_rewrite. You might want to google mod_rewrite for more info, or check out the Apache Config. forum.

    While unlikely, it could mean that there is an indxe.php file in the /register/ folder

    However, it is most probably mod_rewrite, which "rewrites" the url to a actual file located elsewhere on the server.

    Personally, i dont see why it is any more likely either way
