What is is called when you end a domain with a folder name.

(OP)
I could look up the information and do this myself, but I'm not sure what its called

Example

SITENAME is: .... www.mysite.com

I want to have a name/link of www.mysite.com/materials Where I could put various materials for an event, without having to give a link with a page ending in .htm.

What is that called? I don't thinks its a subdoman, because a subdomain would be www.materials.mysite.com ... right?

THANKS for any help...

(I'm using Dreamweaver CS6)

It is just a location. www.mysite.com/materials/ or even www.mysite.com/materials is the same as the default document at www.mysite.com/materials/index.html

Whether the end of the address ends in .php, .html, or .pickles is dependent on how the server is configured to handle documents.
