Setting up a "Coming Soon" page, problems

Having some troubles setting up a “coming soon” page for my website as I prepare my wordpress theme. Currently my directory is empty. I made a page named “index.html” through word, saving it correctly, which included basic html code as follows:

coming soon

Site Coming Soon

But when I go to the website:, all that shows up is the actual code on the screen. Any ideas? Thanks,

Figured it out, you can close.

Looks correct to me at this time.
