Come on in here!

The index page is what greets you when you visit homestarrunner.com, giving you links to watch the Intro or go to one of the main pages. Before the index page was created (ca. June 10, 2003), one was directed straight to one of the introduction toons. Clicking "come on in" will only take you to Main Pages 1 through 20. However, on the Trogdor index page, the other main pages were added.

This page is traditionally replaced by an April Fools' gag on the first of April. In 2003, viewers of this page were taken to a King of Town Intro and King of Town Main Page. In 2004, it was replaced by the Under Construction page. In 2005, this page was replaced by HomestarRunner.com PAY PLUS!, which greeted viewers by informing them that Homestar Runner had become a subscription site. In 2009, it was replaced with April Fool 09, which took the Intro and retroactively changed it into a Strong Bad email. In 2010, it was replaced with Xeriouxly Forxe. In 2014, it was replaced with April Fools' 2014, which remained in its place for roughly three months.

On January 13, 2008, the regular intro page was replaced with a picture of Trogdor in the shape of a 5 to celebrate Trogdor's fifth birthday. It was later changed back on January 21, 2008. Between January 21 and March 31, 2010, the index page featured a "shop our store" link. The link was removed and the original index page was restored on April 2, 2010. An Old-Timey version of the Index Page featuring The Homestar Runner was shown in sbemail206.

On January 13, 2018, non-Flash text was added to the page mentioning the retirement of Flash. It announced a future redesign of the site, linked to YouTube videos and the HTML TROGDOR! game, and allowed viewers to sign up for the Deleteheads mailing list. It was updated on March 9, 2018, to announce The Brothers Chaps' appearance at PAX on April 8, 2018, and Trogdor!! The Board Game. It has been updated several times since.

On July 17, 2018, an unfinished redesigned version was revealed at new.homestarrunner.com.
