The page a visitor lands on when they visit a website using only the domain name in the URL. For example: https://www.seocoaches.com. The home page can be thought of as the “front page” of the web site and is also frequently referred to as the index page due to Apache’s default setting of index.html (or other index pages – index.htm, index.php, etc.) as the default page for directories. However index page can also be used to refer to the default page for any directory within a web site.
