Absolute or Relative URL?

I know this question should be in general/can be google’d, but there are also several points I need to know, which also related to InfinityFree.

So currently I’m about to deploy my own developed site here. And as everyone knows, there are several limitations we should not break. I would like to ask about these two:

  • CPU Performance (should not exceed something percentage)
  • Daily Hit

As the title stated, should I implement the absolute URL, or the relative one? And how does either of them affects the server in terms of performance and/or daily hit?

\Little note\
Relative URL is path to local file, such as page/index.html, while
Absolute URL is the full one, http://mydomain.com/page/index.html

I don’t think that it matters…

Relative paths, absolutely paths, full URLs or whatever other URL configuration you want to use largely boils down to personal preference and what’s most convenient for you.

In the end, the browsers of your visitors are responsible for interpreting the URLs and turning them into a full set of protocol, domain and path. There is no difference in what the browser sends to the server when someone clicks a link, so URL configuration doesn’t affect resource usage either.

If you want to nit pick, you could argue that having the shorter URLs saves bandwidth. But that difference is microscopic and completely insignificant, so it should not be used in the consideration.

I am trying to get my url to point to the index file in the htdocs folder. Shouldn’t setting up a custom domain automatically do that?

@scottrturner
server is configured to search in this order

index.php
if it does not exist
it search for index.html
if it does not exist
it search for index2.html
