I've noticed that the URL for the home page of some sites, is just the site
eg: the URL for the CERN home page is just "http://info.cern.ch"

I have started running an HTTP server on my VMS system, and I would like to
have my home page defined as above, but I have not been able to find the
appropriate info in the Docs I have.
Is there a default filename that WWW and/or Mosaic look for, when the URL is
just the node name? I have tried naming my home page HOME.HTML, WELCOME.HTML,
DEFAULT.HTML, WWW_HOME.HTML but without any results.
I have no problem reading my home page if the URL contains the filename with
the node name.
