Benefits of redirecting traffic to a specific file extension
  • Perfect if you've upgraded your website to use .php file extensions rather than .html or .htm. Please be careful with the above code though, because it will redirect every .html page to the .php version (i.e. check for iframe.html etc and anything else like this)
