Magento 2 Easy Site Maintenance Extension
Sometimes you may want to put your Magento 2 store on maintenance mode due to some technical or server related issues, or you may want to update or change some feature or theme of your website. This is when Easy Site Maintenance extension can be used to inform your clients about the ongoing maintenance.
With this extension, you can put your store under maintenance mode with many configuration options. Given below is a list of all the important features.
- Restrained Access
When the website is under maintenance mode, it can be accessed by admin, system with white listed IPs or excluded URL as per the configuration.
- Countdown Timer
A timer can be set with predefined date and time, which can provide the visitor an idea of when the site would go live.

A log file will be maintained to keep the track of visitors who visited the store when under maintenance mode.
- Contact Form for Urgent inquiry
A provision for “Contact Form” has been included where the visitor can fill the up the requirement and the same will be sent to the email address specified.

The extension is independent of the store views. For e.g. if you have two store views and would like to have only one under the maintenance mode and the other as live, then it is possible.

HTML can be provided for the maintenance page; hence you can design your maintenance page as per the store’s look and feel.

It is possible to upload the logo of your company and set the height and width of the logo as per the page’s requirement.

Your visitors can fill up the notify form to get notification when the site goes live. Thus, you will not miss any customers who visit the site during maintenance mode.

I am a perfectionist when it comes to my business and can’t let things just be. This product seemed to be tailor made for me as I just wouldn’t let my customers go back after seeing a poor maintenance page. Recommended to all businesses to put a professional maintenance page instead of an error one.
The notification feature, count down, and contact features are the most useful features of this product. It helped me retain my customers even when the site was at maintenance. Quite a number of customers (totally unexpected) asked to be notified when the page goes live!
Nice Custom Features
An out of the blue maintenance page, no matter how good it looks, isn’t something that matches my taste. I wanted a themed page that matches my store and Easy Site Maintenance let me do that! Recommended to fellow store owners!
I didn’t want to completely go offline during maintenance of the site so wanted something that can help a part of store remain working. One of my employees recommended Easy Site Maintenance and to my satisfaction there it was exactly the thing I was looking for!
The extension helps you to put up an interactive page even during maintenance. The countdown option informs the customers when to return. We also provided the contact during maintenance to persuade people to call our customer services instead of moving to competitors.
As per my experience in the e-commerce business it is very important to have a maintenance page to avoid giving the impression that the page is permanently down. It can cause you to lose some potential as well as returning customers. Must have!
It offers everything important that you need to take care of when you site is down for improvements. No complaints, it works all good!
I have multiple store views, while looking up for maintenance related products most of them offered to keep the whole site down while the maintenance goes on. Finally, I bumped into Magento 2 Easy Site Maintenance and I could keep only the selected store view under maintenance mode while the others worked fine.
Loved the features
Even when the site is not running, it keeps a count of the visitors and even lets the visitors choose to get notifications when the site is up again. It did work for me and I will definitely recommend it to other looking for a similar product.
The product works superb. The countdown feature lets the customers know that the store will be back soon and even when the site is not working the ‘contact us’ section diverted many customers to my customer service department. Saves you from any losses during the maintenance period.
Value for money
As the product name suggests, it makes the maintenance of your site easy by displaying a customized page while the maintenance goes on. With a whole lot of features for the admin, I definitely suggest it to users looking for a product to do the job efficiently.
