Newbie Q: Making homepage default

So I just finished teaching myself html, DreamHost and ftp, and have posted my first website. However when I click ‘visit’ it directs me to an index showing all of my files, with the url of and my homepage’s url is How do I make it so that if someone types in the url they are directed to my homepage? Its okay if the url still ends in /home.html.

Change your filename to index.html instead of home.html

Done. Worked. Thanks.
