solved Home page vs Landing Page

When visitors reach my network with the main site URL (sitename/) the automatically land on the Site builder "Home page".

I would like the main URL to instead redirect to a specific page URL (sitename/all-services).

If visitors land at "all services", they can still access the technical home page in the main menu at top left.

Is this a change that can only be implemented on the server of the domain name host?

Is it accepted practice have a home page and a landing page that are different?

You can redirect from:
site.com/
to
site.com/all-services

but if you do that you can not ever visit
site.com/
again. Going there will redirect to
site.com/all-services

- "is it accepted practice?"
A: It makes me wonder why you dont just put the content from "All Services" on the top level. What is gained by putting it at /all-services

--edit--
If the reason you want to use that URL is to change the page title you can do that from SITE BUILDER -> PAGE CONFIG -> PAGE SETTINGS -> PAGE TITLE

Thanks for providing clues for the clueless!

Using Site Builder and the >>>Page Settings, I could change the home page URL to sitename/home and the All Services URL to sitename/

Now the main function of the network is first and foremost on the landing page, and "Home" is still there to give visitors a comfortable starting point and overall introduction.

Now it will be interesting to see if this has any positive effect.... (currently the search terms for the two words in my site name place us at the top of 1,150,000,000 results in G*gle search, so I have some hope we can be seen).
