An Under Construction page is used to display information about a web page or website that is not yet completed or ready for viewing on the internet. Commonly used text messages on these pages are "Coming Soon" or "Under Construction."
Here are a couple of examples of Under Construction page graphics that you are welcome to use. Note that you can set the Under Construction page for the entire website or simply a web page.
When Web Hosting Hub servers display a website, they are set to look for specific filenames in a specific order. The names, in order, are index.htm, index.html, index.php and default.htm. This means if you have both an index.html page and an index.php page, the index.html page will display since it is first in the list. The default.htm page is last on the list and is quickly replaced when any of the other three types are created and uploaded. The initial holding page you see on your site when you first sign up for your hosting is named default.htm.
When using programs to develop your site, they will generate either an index.htm, index.html, or index.php file in anticipation of being the first page on your site. This article will show you how to create your own temporary page to display a message without interrupting or overwriting the index page generated by your design program. This way you can work on your site behind the scenes and give your visitors any message you like.
First you will need to create a file to use as your main page. Follow the short set of instructions below as we show you how to create a very basic Under Construction page.
Now that your page has been created, we now need to tell the server to show that as your default page.
Now you can visit your website to see the new main page. Once you are finished with your site and want to remove the page, simply edit the .htaccess file and remove the DirectoryIndex line of code. Below is a shot of how our page looks with the new Under Construction message.
You may sometimes find yourself needing to create an Under Construction page for other web-based applications like WordPress. WordPress, like many content management systems provide ways for you to create a maintenance page that allows you to prevent people from accessing your website while displaying an under construction page. You can find information on both topics for Wordpress in 310:Setting Up a Comming Soon or Maintenance Page for WordPress. You can also do this in OpenCart 1.5, this is one of the first steps when building an OpenCart ecommerce solution. Of course, you don't have to state "Under Construction" or "Website coming soon" on your landing page, you can always use any image file as a placeholder for your homepage. Be creative and choose what works best for you as long as it keeps your visitors both informed and interested in your website.
