said by Toad:No, definitely not. Dreamhost doesn't put a `Default.html`file in the doc root when setting up a newly hosted site, and even if they did I had a (working) temp page (index.html) in place when I gave this dev the login info. He moved everything which I had in place out of doc root and into a temp directory, and copied his stuff over into doc root. This file was in the stuff he placed on the server.
It was probably there as part of the empty folder structure setup from your host. He just copied the files in and left the existing files as is.
