17 Free and Useful Website Under Construction Templates

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.

So start displaying an under construction page on your parked domains or while doing maintenance work for your existing websites. These type of templates are easy to install and free to use. Below, we listed 17 creative under construction page templates that you can download to customize your landing pages. Most of these website templates are actually WordPress themes but for those who are using a different blog platform, we also included some that are available in HTML or Photoshop PSD. To download the template, simply click on the preview image. Installation instructions, terms of use and other important information about each entry can also be found from each source page.
