Q. What are mime types?

A. MIME Types help your web server to identify what type of file is being requested by a browser or other connection tool. For instance, when the web server gets a request from a browser such as Internet Explorer or Netscape, for a file that ends in .html, the web server knows that it is an html document because that extension is stored in the Mime Type list. If the web server gets a request from a browser for a file that ends in .gif, the web server knows that it is an image because that too is stored in the Mime Types. This applies to every file, image, application, etc. that may be requested by a web browser. If the file extension is not stored in the Mime Type list, the web server will not recognize it, will not be able to assist the browser, and that particular file type may not be viewable by the user. The MIME Types option in your Control Panel allows you to set certain programs to be used for specific extensions.
