    By default, your website's homepage will be reported by Google Analytics as '/' in the top content and drill down reports. But depending on how your website is coded you may also see a long-form homepage appearing in your reports, typically something such as /index. html, /home. html, /home.

    If you go to the behavior/site content report and click the tiny icon to the right of the page path dimension (an arrow pointing to the upper right) the url will be prepended to the page path to open the page in question in a new window. Plus it will be used as the domain name in the in-page analysis.

    Now when a user types a URL into his browser address bar that points to a directory structure (instead of an actual web page within the directory) then the web page which is served to him by your web server is called the default page.
