What is the best practice for a homepage path? I see two options:

No path at all: http://www.example.com/
OR a path based on the homepage <title>: http://www.example.com/hello-and-welcome/

Thanks for sharing 'why' ;)


Having no path is definitely best practice.

When people type your domain into their web browser, you will want to immediately show them your homepage without redirecting them. Having your home page at a separate URL is not only semantically confusing but also unnecessary.

    Confusing and unnecessary: that's not what I want! I'll get rid of my standard homepage redirect for sure. Thanks! :)
