For the first method in this guide, we will be using the Countdown Timer Ultimate plugin found here:

https://wordpress.org/plugins/countdown-timer-ultimate/

Once installed and activated you can go to Countdown Timer, Add Timer to set up your timer’s options. Set a name, when the timer should expire, and customize the display to how you want the timer styled. Save your changes and you should now be able to get a shortcode from your Countdown timer area that you can place in a shortcode block or a widget depending on your preference.

For the second option, we are using OptinMonster to create the timer, you can find OptinMonster here:

https://optinmonster.com/

For those using OptinMonster, we will create a new optin, for this example, we are using the popup style and limiting to a Time Sensitive design. Assign the optin to the site you’re wanting and customize the optin, the style chosen should have automatically added a timer for you. Don’t forget to install and activate the OptinMonster plugin to have it display on your WordPress site.

For the last method, we will be using SeedProd found here:

https://www.seedprod.com/

The site will give you a zip file to install under Plugins, Add New, and click Upload at the top of the page. Activate the plugin and add your license key for the plugin to begin working with it under Settings, Coming Soon Pro. You will be given the option to customize the page as well as decide if you want it to be visible or not.

    Hey, yesterday I tried to migrate a website to another domain that I had just bought, but the backup file turned out waaay too big (actually bigger than the 256mb that Hostinger accepts). Is there a way to see the files' sizes? I mean, I tried deleting some content that was useless, but it didn't make much a difference. I have no clue what is causing it to be so "heavy", if it is a theme… maybe the backup I had done before (DB and files to my Dropbox account)… etc.
    (sorry the off-topic, but you have been helpful since I started this "journey") 😉

    Hey
    I have just bought two domians. But when I go to the cPanel and install the one-click WordPress on that domain, it demands the directory option to be filled at one occasion and on another occasion when I try it again, it saying that your directory option is not empty…. In short, I am unable to install WordPress in both the cases.
    Moreover, when I installed WordPress two to three times, it gets installed but it is not redirecting me to the next step of account creation i.e username, password and all that..
    What should I do???
    Your guidance would be great kindness
