Remove Coming Soon Page On Wordpress.

Last Update: October 23, 2017

l have received a lot of inquiries on how to remove Wordpress 'Coming Soon Page' on one of my websites. Since l host my websites with Wealthy Affiliate, my websites never show this message.

However, to help others, l decided to do some research and l found out that the coming soon page is displayed on websites hosted on Bluehost and Hostgator among others. So before you disable Bluehost, coming soon page let us look at how it comes into being.

By default, some hosting companies install a plugin called Mojo Marketplace. For starters, it is a place where you can buy plugins and themes just as we do from Wordpress. Once this plugin is automatically installed, it displays the 'Coming soon page' on your website. It is also proof that your website and the plugin were successfully installed. If your host is Bluehost, disable 'coming soon' page by following the procedure below.

To remove this default page, you must log into your website and the top there will be a link which if you click on the page will be disabled. You can go a step further and disable the 'Mojo Marketplace' plugin or even delete it if you do not need it. If you need to add coming soon page to wordpress, you can also install the Mojo Marketplace plugin.

Please note that if you disable the plugin first before disabling the coming soon page, it will not go away. If that happens, consider reinstalling and reactivating the plugin. Click on the link at the top of your website admin panel to remove the standby Wordpress page. Remember to clear your cache and refreshing the website for your new page to display correctly. Also, check on other devices if the website page is being displayed correctly.

l hope you found this advice useful. If everything fails, kindly contact your host.

Interesting. I have never even heard of there being a Coming Soon page.

Many hosts provide the ability to build a new/edit an existing site in "sandbox" mode prior to launching the new/updated product onto the playground. It allows you to play around in the background and tweak your work prior to going live with it.
