Is this form of a dynamic webpage address OK?

Hi

My site is hosted on an IIS server, where index.php is allowed as a
directory index.

I have been using http://www.mysitename.com/ as the main address,
but http://www.mysitename.com/index.php?v=value as a link to results
using the GET variable v.

I have found that http://www.mysitename.com/?v=value also works.
Is there any reason that shouldn't use this URL?

Thanks,

Karin

Not really.

On whether the address http://www.mysitename.com/?v=value is OK as
an equivalent to http://www.mysitename.com/index.php?v=value where
index.php is the directory index,

Could you elaborate on that?

There is no reason not to use /?var=

There might be more pressing reasons why you shouldn't *change* to
using that URL.

That method works perfectly fine, in fact that's what I use.

Like others have said, go ahead and use the short form.

Is there a reason why you ask this question? Are you concerned about some
future change on the server or something?

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
