Creating Under Construction or Coming Soon Page


In this article I am going to discuss in detail how to create an under construction or coming soon page using Godaddy. One of my friend recently purchased a domain through Godaddy account and he wants to host his domain on Godaddy server, which is available on some other account.

Now, here the challenge is to first do the mapping of the domain with the hosting and then create an index.html file. I will demonstrate the complete process and this will help you to create under construction or coming soon page over Godaddy server.

Now, the question comes how to map domain name with the hosting located on other server?
Login into the Godaddy Account

Move on to the Domain for which you want to create an under construction page or coming soon page. I have to host my site 360digitalguru.com on Godaddy server which is the part of other Goddady account. In below screen you can see I have 4 domains and I have to host www.360digitalguru.com.

Before inputting the hosting correct A record you need to change what is the “IP Address” of the hosting, This can be checked by using cmd prompt.

In cmd window write –

Ping server IP Address.

I have hosted www.alljobshub.com on the same server where I want to host www.360digitalguru.com

So to check the IP address I can do ping www.alljobshub.com



command prompt

Here, you can see my server IP is 166.62.28.134
