Hi norcsfe:
If you are trying to stop your website  from being seen on the internet without canceling your
account, save your index page as index1 and delete your index page. Then open a new page
leave it blank and save it to index. When you need to go back to having a live website cancel your index page and just open index1 and save as index then you are back in business.

You can unpublish from the file manager. Click on your site name on the top right of the editor. Open your File Manager, select your pages and files, and un-publish.

You can create a text box: "Under Construction" or whatever you want to use to identify your site's condition. Expand the text box to cover your menus, add a color background to hide the contents, use text centering, borders and padding to create a nice presentation. The same thing can be accomplished using any image. Be creative. Covering the menus will prevent access to other pages without having to change the status of your site. After, save and publish. Using this alternate method, you can work on your site by lifting the cover and insert images, text etc. You can Save your work without changing the published presentation. When you're ready, remove the facade save and publish.

Hello norcsfe1991

Any of these options would work.

For the Sitebuilder site, I would use that first option themieleman posted about unpublishing.

For any of the new Website Builder sites, unpublishing is not an option, so I would use the "Under Construction" option he gave
