Home page problem

I have created a hosting account and need to designate the home page. By default I assume the home page would be index.html or a variation of index such as .php and so on.

I need to change the default home page from what it is to my actual home page. How do I do this? I have attemted to search all help topics with no luck and have not found this option in panel.dreamhost.com.

Your right default is index.extention with extention being .html, .htm, .php, etc.
Here is the link for changing the default name in the wiki. htaccess file
