ASP.net default page processing ???

page process , .net , asp.net page MacKinney, United States

    Hi

    When the Internet Information Service process (inetinfo.exe) receives an HTTP request, it uses the filename extension of the requested resource to determine which ISAPI program to run to process the request. When the request is for an ASP.NET page (.aspx file) IIS passes the request to the ISAPI DLL capable of handling the request for ASP.NET pages which is aspnet_isapi.dll.

    This I understand in case the file name is in the requested URL like http://microsoft.com/whatsnew.aspx , But what is the process sequence if it is only http://www.microsoft.com . I understand that the default page gets called somehow but I am trying to understand the sequence.

    Please advise. Thanks Pankaj
