Launching websites involves a lot of activities. For one, you need to decide for your domain name, avail a hosting plan and download your platform. Right now, the most popular is WordPress because of its ease of use. After you have gone through the domain registration, hosting and platform setup, it is now time for you to choose the right theme. This, however, is not fast and easy. You have to choose the theme that fit your needs and personal preferences perfectly. While you are still searching for the theme that you can use, it is better that you do a little promotion of your site by setting up an under construction template. This way you can inform your visitors that you are working on the site and also have them subscribe to your email of RSS feed.
Here, we are showcasing a select few under construction wordpress themes that you can use on your site to inform your readers of the progress you are making. Also, we are including some WordPress plugins that you can use to display a ‘coming soon’ page to your default WordPress theme, if you are using this platform. Also included are PSD templates that you can use if you want to code your own HTML.
Meanwhile, after you have set up your ‘under construction’ page, you can focus your attention now to choosing the ideal theme. Take your pick and happy blogging!
