The normal website addres is not recognised. To access the site I have to add /home.html 

Previously was this not the case.

Jacques, have you moved your hosting recently (perhaps the new hosting with WX5)?

You may need to add a line to you .htaccess file

#Alternate default index page

DirectoryIndex home.html

-------------------------------

you can add multiple if you wish

#Alternate default index pages

DirectoryIndex home.html index.htm index.html index.php

OK, I could find the file and the problem is solved - Thank you very much. I just hope this will not disapear when I reload new updates.

Oops - you solved the problem before I could complete the instructions. I shall leave this here in case it helps others. . . 

Jacques, go to step 5 and click on upload the website to the internet (as you would normally do to update your site) and select the file browser.

You can now locate the .htaccess file and copy it locally. Do the edits and then copy it back to your host overwriting the original (there is also the option to rename the original rather than overwrite if you wish).
