When you are in the process of building a website or launching a business, it is always a good idea to let your visitors know in advance a tentative time frame when you will be up and running.
Also when you have already bought the domain and not yet developed a website on it, some of the visitors who happen to visit it may not pay a second visit thinking that there is no content on the site; placing a coming soon template can avoid such eventualities.
