Default home page priority

Date Created: 24 Dec, 2009   (12 year(s) ago) Viewed: 3461 Rating: 


The filename below is the order of priority which the web hosting will read as the website index (default/main) page.

  1. index.php
  2. index.html
  3. index.htm
  4. index.shtml
  5. index.cfm (Option)

If you need to change a site or directory default page, you can do so see: How do you set a website default page to something other than index.html.
  • You need to upload your files to the httpdocs directory.
  • Linux system is case-sensitive, so Index.HTML is not the same thing as index.html.
  • index.html always takes priority over index.htm. If you want to use index.htm and there is already a file named index.html, then you should delete it or rename it to index.htm.
  • If you don't upload a default page then visitors will receive our welcome page when then go to your website. This is because for security reasons, directory listing is disabled by default on our servers. Once you upload your index.html page, they will no longer see this page.
