Index.html priority over index.php

Im using godaddy for hosting and my default page is index.php here: www.fifthagency.com. I'd like to have my index page as index.html (inro) which is located in the root of the site (www.fifthagency.com/index.html)
Ive tried adding code below to .htaccess in the root of the web site with no luck. What else could it be?
RewriteRule index\.php index.html [NC,R]

the answer was  DirectoryIndex index.html index.php
You may want to use a redirect in your index.html page or simply ask them to change your default document.
This can also be done via the control panel.
May also use Java in your index.html

< html >
   < head >
      < title >index< /title >
   < /head >
   < body >
      < script language="javascript" >
         window.location = "http://www.example.com/mypage.aspx";
      < /script >
      Index page.
   < /body >
< /html >
