IgniteUp – Coming Soon and Maintenance Mode

Description: Create your Coming Soon, Under Construction page, or Maintenance Mode page with just a few clicks. There are more than 7 templates to choose from.

Why it made my list: IgniteUp is probably one of the most gorgeous free under construction plugins available at the moment. I just really love the design. It also has all the features you would need and it was updated just 2 weeks ago as of the time of writing.

Ultimate Coming Soon Page

Description: Creates a Coming Soon page or Launch page for your Website while it’s under construction and collects emails from your visitors.
