What should I name my files?

I have created my first web page. What should I name it?

You will need to name your home page a specific name. And these names are.

  • index.htm
  • index.html
  • index.php
  • default.html
  • default.htm

The reasoning behind this is web servers look for specific files when your web address is requested. And if you don't have the file name correct, you will get a directory listing. Or if your site is setup properly, you will get a you are not authorized to access this page.
