Hi Everyone,

When the rewrites go in to effect, some links that point to the previous URL are redirected to the new address. URL rewrites create it possible to make accessible URLs more “search Engine Friendly” and also simple for humans to reads. Enabling Web Server Apache Rewrites is the part of the initial Magento 2 setup. Magento 2 usually uses URL rewrites to eliminate the file name “index.php” that normally appear in the URL just after the root folder. When Web Server rewrites are permitted, the system rewrites each URL to omit “index.php”. The rewrite reduces words that suggest nothing of value to search engines or customers and has no impact on performance or site position.
