How do I setup an intro or 'splash' page for my site?

When a customer browses to your site domain, you may choose to have an introduction page (or 'splash' page as they are often referred to) before they proceed to the site. This can be used to display a simple site introduction, special offers, advertisements, or any other display you wish a visitor to see before entering the site.

Place your splash page document (.HTML, .aspx, .php, etc.) in the {root} directory of the web site. In IIS (Internet Information Services), setup the default document for the document you wish to use. ( IIS6 setup click here or for IIS7 click here )

Additional Tips
To set a timed view of the splash page, you can create a meta refresh tag placed in the <head> section of the splash page document like such:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="8; url=http://www.mysite.com/default.aspx" />

Where 8 is the time before the redirect, and the url is the target page.
