.preloader {
    position: fixed;
    width: 100%;
    height: 100vh;
    background: #0f0f0f;
    left: 0;
    top: 0;
    display: flex;
    flex-direction: column;
    align-items: center;
    justify-content: center;
    transition: all 400ms;
    z-index: 2000;
}

.preloader.hide {
    opacity: 0;
    pointer-events: none;
}

.preloader .preloader-text {
    color: #838383;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    letter-spacing: 8px;
    font-size: 15px;
}

.preloader .dots-container {
    display: flex;
    margin-bottom: 48px;
}

.preloader .dot {
    background: red;
    width: 20px;
    height: 20px;
    border-radius: 50%;
    margin: 0 5px;
}

.preloader .dot.red {
    background: #ef476f;
    animation: bounce 1000ms infinite;
}

.preloader .dot.green {
    background: #06d6a0;
    animation: bounce 1000ms infinite;
    animation-delay: 200ms;
}

.preloader .dot.yellow {
    background: #ffd166;
    animation: bounce 1000ms infinite;
    animation-delay: 400ms;
}

@keyframes bounce {
    50% {
        transform: translateY(16px);
    }

    100% {
        transform: translateY(0);
    }
}

Step-3: Now search for <head> tag and paste the HTML and JavaScript code below it. 

<div class="preloader">

        <div class="dots-container">
            <div class="dot red"></div>
            <div class="dot green"></div>
            <div class="dot yellow"></div>
        </div>

        <div class="preloader-text">
            Loading...
        </div>
    </div>

<script>
const preloader = document.querySelector(".preloader");
const preloaderDuration = 400;

const hidePreloader = () => {
    setTimeout(() => {
        preloader.classList.add("hide");
    }, preloaderDuration);
}

window.addEventListener("load", hidePreloader);

You can also add the preloading effect to the homepage only by adding If condition wrapping both HTML and Javascript code.
