    hide file extension

    Hi,

    I see some website URL has no file extension at all, how could that be done?

    And is there any advantage of doing so ?

    It's usually done using .htaccess and it's called, among other names, url rewriting. You can read about it here: http://corz.org/serv/tricks/htaccess2.php
