SharePoint 2010 – Adding Custom HTML Home Page.

Sometimes we have a requirement to upload a custom HTML page or txt file on the Root folder of SharePoint sites. This could be used with Robots.txt or domain validation used with third party services like Google Apps or etc..

For example you have a page to be available on following URL : http://www.waziray.com/Custom.html instead of http://www.waziray.com/Pages/Custom.html

The best way to accomplish this task is to use SharePoint Designer.

Just open SharePoint Designer and login to your site.

SPD_CustomHtml_1

In the Navigation Section, Under Site Objects, double click on ‘All Files’.

SPD_CustomHtml_2

Now simply drag & drop the custom HTML page from your PC (Desktop) to the right pane of SharePoint Designer, under ‘All Files’ tab (as shown below).

SPD_CustomHtml_3

Additionally you can make this HTML File as ‘Default Page’.

Just right click on Same page and choose ‘Set as Home Page’ from popup menu.
