Park your page in style with LaunchSplash

Start tracking visitors to your site before it exists with LaunchSplash.

Just bought a domain and don't know what to do with it? Maybe you need to set up a blog, or are in the midst of hiring a designer. Don't just let it sit there while you get your act together--get a page to let people know what's going on. A service called LaunchSplash is offering a simple tool that does this for you.

All you have to do to get started is drop in a simple headline and description. The site provides an RSS feed people can subscribe to in order to get updates, or a simple mailing list that you can use to send out a blast when your site goes live.

Mapping the new landing page to your domain is pretty simple--you just plug in a special address provided by LaunchSplash into the management page where you bought the domain. From then on it will send visitors to your landing page instead of a blank "server not found" page. You can also plug in Google Analytics to track how many people are coming to your site before it's even up.

To make its cash the site offers a premium service that gives you more complex control over the page including four extra themes to spice up what people see (note: experts can simply tweak the CSS file).The higher plans also let you ramp up the amount of pages you can have up to 50 sites.
