#tips - File Naming

April 26, 2014 at 12:01 PM

Anyone who uses a computer, or website has to navigate various naming conventions. These cover file name, folder name, website addresses and website page names. The way in which these are constructed can vary hugely between different people and different websites.


  1. NEVER USE UPPERCASE - only use lowercase letters (a - z )
  2. NEVER USE SPACES - if you must space words out then-use-a-hyphen
  3. You can use numbers in file names 0 - 9
  4. Keep the total lenght of the name to under 60 character, and far less if possible
  5. Only use one fullstop 
  6. NEVER USE ANY SPECIAL CHARACTERS, only use the base ones: a-z, 0-9, a hyphen and a fullstop.
