Yes your main page should be called index.html!
If you have more than one page in your root directory, it will always look for your index.html file first! If you have named all your files something else, i.e. page1.html, contactus.html, aboutus.html etc - then when you try to navigate to your site, all you will see is a list of these files, and not the homepage!!
So what you have done is correct.
Ofcoarse there are other ways such as .htaccess that you can use to point to a file, but that is beyond the scope of your question!
