I have completed a (very) basic html intro assignment. The current URL is https://studentweb.kennesaw.edu/~hmcgoldr/.
Our professor, however, wants us to complete the assignment to look like this : https://studentweb.kennesaw.edu/~hmcgoldr/2200.

My question is how to I resubmit to the server so that /2200 will be included in the url.

I know this is probably a ridiculously simple question, but I have tried numerous methods of researching to try to figure this out before coming here. Any help would be appreciated.

Did your professor really want the URL to be exactly like that, without a trailing slash? Or did he want it to be https://studentweb.kennesaw.edu/~hmcgoldr/2200/ ?

Because the first isn't trivial and it ain't HTML either. It's server configuration. Sounds a little over the top for a basic HTML class. I'm going to assume you want the URL with the slash. That's easy. It's just a matter of creating a new directory inside the one where you have your index.html now and then upload or move index.html there.

Each / in a URL means one directory down. Same as backslash in Windows paths. Only the domain bit of an URL is an exception from that. studentweb.kennesaw.edu in your case. But from ~htmcgoldr (even if that could be pointed to a folder with a different name) it's just folders within folders.

Like on this domain, this index.html https://htmlhelp.com/tools/index.html is really inside a folder named tools that's inside the main folder for the site.
