    What platform are you on? Managed WordPress? cPanel?


    If it's a WordPress site, there are plug-ins that help you with this, such as


    what if its Cpanel? Its too early for me to create the page, but the homepage address is already on my business cards and I want to show the logo and coming soon sign with my email or instagram account details until I find good designer to work on the page


    Here is a sample Under construction page

    This is a sample and can be changed to fit your needs. I tried to post the HTML Code in a Code tag but kept getting a permission Denied when trying to post so I have attached the html file. The file will need some changes but can be used as a base.


    to enter a new line use 


    any text not between "<>" can be changed as that is Text that will show on the page. For the Email link you can delete it or change it to your email address.


    <a title="Email Link" href=""></a>

    replacing the with your email address.

    You will need to upload your business logo to the same location as index.html and then replace fedora.jpg with the name of your image file.

    A new and improved website is being constructed. Thank you for stopping by and please come back again real soon.
