My family company is going to be on hiatus for a couple of years, yet we still keep getting phone calls and form submissions from our website. I did not want to delete the site completely unless there is a way I can recover it in the future. Can I archive the site, delete it, and republish it from the archived files in the future?

You can archive the site, and you would then be able to upload all the files using the file manager, except for the pages themselves. Unfortunately you would have to recreate the pages.

Load the source page, save it under a new name, make sure it really is saved. On the original, delete everything, put on a message saying when you'll be back, save, and publish.

When you're back, load the saved version, save as the original name, and publish.
