I need to change the welcome page to index.shtml so when folks hit my domain name they go right to the home page of the web site.  How can I do this preferably from the interface so nothing else get's impacted?

I did this and it did not fix it.  I had to go to the actual server level and that worked instead of the site.  Weird not sure why it would not work from the default web site but it would not.  You got me there.
