Files for a Website

All thse files go in the root of the domain unless otherwise specified.

.htaccess

Total control of the site: redirection, security, etc. More info.

Icons

favicon.ico

The little icon for the site. Some browsers also look for .png .jpg versions.

apple-touch-icon.png

Because apple has to do things their way…

browserconfig.xml

Because Microsoft can't be showed up by Apple… (actually, I don't know who came first, and I don't care. It's just more work on my part…)

Generate a browserconfig.xml

Microsoft info

crossdomain.xml

So adobe flash and acrobat can be controlled on who they talk to. Here's a typical example. See more here.

crossdomain.xml
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE cross-domain-policy SYSTEM "http://www.adobe.com/xml/dtds/cross-domain-policy.dtd">
<cross-domain-policy> 
    <site-control permitted-cross-domain-policies="master-only"/> 
    <allow-access-from domain="*.example.com"/> 
    <allow-access-from domain="www.example.com"/> 
    <allow-http-request-headers-from domain="*.adobe.com" headers="SOAPAction"/> 
</cross-domain-policy> 

Generate a crossdomain.xml

Sitemaps

robots.txt

Who can scan your site. More info.

sitemap.xml

Or sometimes by another name. Should be specified in robots.txt.

labels.rdf

Another method. See here

trafficbasedsspsitemap.xml

Only used my Microsoft.
