Create Under Construction Page for Your Website

Once your Web Hosting service is active, it will be automatically connected to your domain name. If you go to your site, you will see an error message:

This is because your current server doesn’t detect files and it doesn’t look professional. You can create your own Under Construction page with a simple text or image. If you wish to use WordPress for your website, you can install an Under Construction plugin.

Using Scripts

You can use PHP scripts or HTML with your temporary Under Construction page, though you may not necessarily use it. You may use your computer’s notepad and upload the file via FTP, check our FTP Category for more information.

You may also add these scripts through the File Manager, here’s how:

Step 1Log in to the cPanel using this link format: http://yourdomain.com/cpanel/  
Replace yourdomain.com with the Main Domain Name connected to your hosting.
Step 2. Click File Manager under Files panel.

Step 3. Select ‘public_html’ as the directory.
Or select the directory where your domain name is currently pointing.
Step 4. Click +File to add a new file.

Step 5. Enter the file name, we recommend using ‘index’, index.php or index.html, since this is the file that is most used by servers as a default lading page. It would depend if you’ll be using PHP scripts or HTML.
Step 6. Click Create New File.

Step 7. Right click on the index file and select Code Edit. Click Edit on the Code Editor pop-up.

Step 8. Here are sample scripts you can use or follow:

PHP:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body><?php
echo “Under Construction”;
?></body>
</html>

File name should be ‘index.php’.

HTML without image:

<html>
<head>
<title>Under Construction</title>
<body>
<p>Our site is under construction. Thank you for your patience!</p>
</body>
</html>

HTML with image:

<html>
<head>
<title>Under Construction</title>
<body>
<center>
<p>Our site is under construction. Thank you for your patience!</p>
<img src=”link to your image here” alt=”under construction”>
</center>
</body>
</html>

File name should be ‘index.html’.

Step 9. Click Save Changes on the top-right corner.

Once you type your domain name to any browser, you can see text and the image that you’ve just added for your Under Construction page.
