Why won't my website pages load without the .html extension?

I just migrated my website from GoDaddy and now my subpages will not resolve without the .html extension. For instance, ThatsSanta.com/Calendar resolved fine on GoDaddy, but now that I'm here it gets a 404. It has to be ThatsSanta.com/Calendar.html to resolve now. Is there a way to fix this? I have direct links all over the place (forums, e-mails to large groups, etc) that I need to resolve.

Hi Santa,

I visited your site and I see that you resolved this by creating a redirect from /Calendar to /Calendar.html. I also see that your internal links have the .html extension in them.

It sounds like you may have had rewrite rules in your .htaccess file at your previous host. You may want to take a look at those rewrite rules in your old .htaccess file and either try uploading that .htaccess file here or copying over the rewrite rules into a new .htaccess file in your account.

Please let us know if you have any questions or need additional assistance.

Regards, Christi N.
