View Full Version : Default .html files ?

10-03-2004, 01:22 AM
I have a domain name - www.myname.com

Why is it that the default file the browser looks for when someone enters 'www.myname.com' into their browser's address bar will always be www.myname.com/index.html ?

Is it possible to change this so that I can call the .html file anything I want (without using a meta redirect tag and having two .html files)

Howdy... :)

I don't think this question has anything to do with Flash, right??? Please post to the appropriate forum... I am moving this post to General > HTML and JavaScript forum... :)

Okay... Here is my question... What's the web server of your host???
If it is IIS, read this page...
If it is Apache, read this page...
(I'm too lazy to type all that, so I did a quick google... So, there's got to be more if you need more information... :))

Just out of interest, what was the exact string you googled ? (if you recall) I had trouble finding what I needed.

For IIS : IIS default file name index.htm index.html

For Apache : Apache default file name index.htm index.html
