When starting a new blog or website, it is best to use an attractive under construction page template or theme to inform potential readers about your upcoming site. Having a nice coming soon page will make people curious about your site. Since under construction page templates usually include an option for visitors to sign up for email updates, then you will be able to start getting subscribers and potential readers to your site while you are still developing it. Another use for these templates is when you are planning to do maintenance work or redesign in your site. Instead of displaying a plain notice of site under construction or webpage not found, it would be very useful to inform your loyal readers and visitors that your site is just undergoing site maintenance and will be back soon.
