I was starting to implement a new website based on the template offered by installation - blackcandy. During my changes the "Home"-Page has been deleted and I have another page which should appear when someone is calling www.mydomain.tld. Neither the docs nor the forum search pointed me to a solution how to archive this.
One other thing, if you really want the starting page to appear as something like www.mysite.com/new-products you could create an empty redirector page pointing to this address called home. Now if someone goes to your website it will immediately send them to the right page.
