If you are waiting for your new Zeald website to be developed and loaded, you might like to get a "coming soon" page up so that users can at least find your contact details.
We have a standard template that is fairly simple and contains your logo and a couple of lines of text, you should be able to complete it yourself in 10-15minutes, however we do have website administrators available who can do this for you for a small fee.
If you wanted something more advanced please contact us and we can provide a cost estimate depending on what you are wanting to display
Here is an example of the (free) standard option which you can create yourself :
If you have an existing website you are probably best to keep that in place right up to the day your new website goes live. No one really likes to stumble on a "coming soon" page, they much prefer to find all the information on your website.

The coming soon page is a single page with a predefined format. You are not able to change the layout of this page or add secondary pages. Remember this page is temporary and you should aim to get your real website loaded and live as soon as possible.
