It depends on what the server is set up to recognize as "default" names.
Most support index.htm(l), home.htm(l), and welcome.htm(l), usually in
that order. Keep in mind that *nix-based servers are also case-sensitive,
so indeX.htMl may not work (I try to just keep everything lowercase unless
there's a particular need to do otherwise).
