There isn't one, .htm is just an old form from when file extensions were limited to three characters. Either .htm or .html will work perfectly fine, but for future-proofing sake I'd stick with .html.

Difference between .htm and .html

HI ! .htm and .html are both recognised as HTML files. The only difference between the two is that .htm is used as an alternate to .html by few servers that do not accept four character extensions. However, operating systems have advanced over years and now, they support long name too.

I think there is no difference between these but only new and old . But keep this thing in your mind when you use .html for your index page you can't use .htm for further pages. You have to use .html for all pages.

When you save the file locally, the difference doesn't matter - your local system will likely treat the two file extensions as interchangeable for loading by your browser. The reason for it is that historically Windows-based systems used 3 letter extensions (htm) and Unix-based systems the 4 letters (html).

Difference between .htm and .html

.htm used to be normal when the length of the extension was important (in the days of 8.3 letter filenames) but that has not been an issue for a long time and .html is more common today since it is more descriptive. So far as the web is concerned, you can use any extension you like or none at all (so long as the server is configured to send the right mime-type) - the extension is only an issue on your local computer.

Difference Between .htm and .html

There are no difference between .htm and .html. Sometimes file save time only contains 3 characters in extension. Both are HTML extension nothing else.

Both .html and .htm are the same, I read somewhere that browsers requires specific length of extension. The difference between .htm and .html is ultimately the letter 'L'. A server and browser operating over HTTP don't care how many letters are in the file extension.

.htm and .html, both are the same extensions for HTML files. .html is an old form of saving the HTML files while .html is a new form. There is no difference between them.
