Why a plug for the site at the time of development or reconstruction

Cap - this is a temporary home page that tells visitors what your site is under construction. On-page stub, as a rule, there is no navigation, so that users will not be able to move to other pages of the site. You can leave a message for visitors to contact you and the approximate date of the site, to come back later.

The cap can be put not only on the existing site at the time of the technical work, but also for the new site, which is still in the process of development, not to open a blank page or display server error. The main purpose of using the page-caps:

  • hide the site from visitors, while it is in unfinished state;
  • to inform the target audience at an early stage of development of the site;
  • close access to the content at the time of technical work;
  • display the contact information of the company during the development of the site.

Home-plug is adjusted at the discretion of the site owner. You can just apologize to visitors and to specify method of communication with the administration. Place the icons of social networking users to subscribe to updates, or add a redirect to the news sections and archival information company.

In order not to lose the target audience of the site during maintenance work, it is useful to equip special plug field subscription to notifications via email or feedback form to contact potential customers. For commercial sites is better to make at least one page of the company instead of hanging for half caps, especially if the development of greatly delayed.

Lines 13 and 14 will be required only in the case where access to the site is possible with multiple IP-addresses, you will need to substitute it with your own value.
