create an index.htm file in the root directory of the website with the following code in it
<html>
 <header>
  <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0"; URL="http://192.168.168.1/Start">
 </header>
</html>

Open in new window


or or could use "/Start" instead of "http://192.168.168.1/Start"

this will redirect it to stating page

Are you using IIS?

for IIS7

Open IIS manager
go to the website in question
make sure you are in Features View
Double-Click; default documents
check that index.htm is there

if not, click Add and add it, move it to the top

Yes,

C:\inetpub\VS2012

is the place on which I deploy all the projects, and I have the file "index.htm" that is having

<html>
 <header>
  <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0"; URL="http://192.168.168.1/Start">
 </header>
</html>

Open in new window

within the same folder.
