if you want to correctly mimic the directory level url, I've found the best way is to create a page group for the directory, then a default.aspx beneath it and make it the first child. that way if people go to
they will correctly be directed to vtcus.com/report/default.aspx.
however, this will change the url to the latter since they are being redirected...
If you want the url to stay as a directory, then you'd have to make the "home" page for the directory be the page itself. in otherwords instead of report.aspx being a Page Group, it's just a page.
setting the extentionless urls will make it work as expected, however, it's not correctly implementing the directory, because users will technically be visiting vtcus.com/report.aspx, and not vtcus.com/report.
the method you chose will likely depend on if the directory level url will have subfiles in it. I personally like to keep the format as if it were a real subdirectory. Even though the end users will ultimately be redirected to site.com/folder/default.aspx, they really only have to enter site.com/folder and that's all they have to remember because either way works, and it remains consistent with the correct structure of the site.
anyway it's just a suggestion based on my experience. I hope that this was helpful in some way.
