Framed Site - Index.html
What file name?

 12:12 am on Feb 17, 2001 (gmt 0)

When a site is built with frames, the frameset file is usually named INDEX.HTM. Does it matter if the file is named DEFAULT.HTM?

My understanding is that it makes no difference but I am not 100% sure about this when it comes to framed sites.

Any comments?

I assume you're speaking about making a difference to the search engines? No difference at all that I've ever heard of.

the difference can be that when you type in www.yourdomain.com, some servers will default to index.htm, some to index.html, and some to default.htm.

Check with your server.

Well actually it depends on the web server index.htm & default.htm are defined as the start page of the site

so when somebody enters www.xxx.yyy/aja/

It then picks the index.htm or the default.htm as the page and is shown

any page can be a frameset it will not make a difference
