There is not much luxury with the customize of this page.

I still keep the simplicity with my coming soon page, but I provide more information to my customers and design the layout to fit my sock’s store.
Here is how it looks inside the PageFly editor app dashboard. All elements on the page editor can be built with the simple drag and drop mechanism. It’s pretty easy.
This feature support all three PageFly plans including Free, Pro, and Premium. With the history version, you can easily access the old page copy of your PageFly page. Rest assured when your web browser is crashed you can restore the currently editing and past version of your page.
