Take a website offline


Is there a quick & easy way to take a website temporarily offline? And when I mean offline, I don’t mean just the homepage, but also all the other pages.

Thanks in advance.


Renaming the folder on the webspace with a ftp client is one way.

Excellent idea. But how can I still maintain a home page with a text explaining why it is off line?

And furthermore: are there options from within RW itself?

If you want a a maintain page, i would upload the maintain page in an extra folder on the webspace and point the domain to this folder instead. Ok, you can not make this within RW.

Check your host control panel, a lot of them have an option to do this.

Thanks for the expert advice to you both.
