    Need help with website links

    Need help because my brain is fried and not thinking correctly. :-)

    What I am having trouble trying to figure out is this.
    I am in charge of real estate websites and what I want to be able to do is shorten up urls within the domain.
    For instance: let's say that an agent tells someone to go to their profile and gives them this url - realeastesales.com/johnsmith
    When anyone who types this in the address bar I want it to show realeastesales.com/johnsmith and not realeastesales.com/agents/johnsmith/profile.html where the actual profile page is, my questions is what is the best and easiest way to acheive this?

    P.S. If this is not to difficult I would like to do this with the whole website, not show the profile page extension i.e. index.html (just show realeastesales.com), contact.html (just show realeastesales.com/contact) etc.

    businessname.com/agents.html

    Make a page for the agents. On each page list each agent. Make each agent a personal page and link to that page from businessname.com/agents.html

    You can also make a direct link.....businessname.com/johnsmith.html.

    Thanks for the reply, but I don't want the page name i.e. johnsmith.html showing in the address bar, just the name. Many websites do this because I see this all the time. :-)
