How can I make a Webpage in whatever HTML Editor, and save it as whatever file extension and upload it, and the web browser will read it as an HTML File? Like let's say instead of a Contact page being contact.html i could make it contact.lacobus (That's a horrible extension, just an example lol) and it could read it as it was contact.html?

So long and as far as I know off hand so long as there is hmtl coding within the file it should read it without a problem if you have it set in a link. But with most browsers today. The extensions like .htm, .html, .jsp, .asp, php are ones that are defaults by the W3C organization that will set the standards for something like this. If you want something like this to be answered properly you can take a look at the world wide web Consortium web site to get more answers to something like this or even email them to find out. Here is their web link directly to their web site. http://www.w3.org/

some times you cant you may find you need to copy it to text file and save it to the exe you want if its just standard .htm or .html should have no issue but if its php or cgi script ..
contact.lacobus you can not do at all lacubus is not a illegitimate extension :)
HTM or html is the best you can do .. file name contact. exe HTML
or you could make contact a directory contact lacubus the file name .htm exe
so you have yourdomain.com/contact/lacubus.htm
I hate explaining programing needless to say you can use anything for an extesion but unless the browser knows what it is it wont work :)
all programing is the same in some way if you can remember that a web site ( web server is nothing but a computer, NO extension that wont work on a computer wont work on your web site a server is a computer if you added a server ap to your hard drive with ip address domain name made your windows directory your public directory your whole file structure become a big web site every file every directory is open readbale thing will open for up load down load everything you do becomes an open book to the world :)
the extetion like txt, doc .jpg zip and so on all will work in the browser email ftp IRC no matter ..
name a file anything you want .html it becomes a page link to it from the index ..
they call it an index because like a book it is the it is the frist part of the book that leads you through if it was an appendix it would be the end of your site :) header top of the page footer bottom Meta expalnation of the page no brainer ..
