It can be configured on the web server to point to a particular page.

by default(if not set differently) if you have a page called index.html that is the one served up by most if not all http servers

Parul,
Actually home page of a site consumes this benefit. In IIS we write down the name in a GUI, in Tomcat we edit the web.xml file etc. Typically its index.html, index.htm, index.jsp, index.jsp, default.html or default.htm.
