On occasion, you might want to take a site "offline" without having to delete it permanently. For example, if a client misses a payment, you can take their site offline until their balance is paid. You might even take a site offline after you present a demo mock-up to a prospect and are waiting for them to make a purchase decision. Taking a site offline prevents anyone from accessing the site, without deleting the work you've done.
You can take any site in your account offline by following these steps...
From your Dashboard, click on the "Site Details" link next to the site that you want to take offline.
From the Site Details page, click on the “Edit” link.
Click on the red "Take Offline" button.
You will see a confirmation message when the site is taken offline. The site's Status will change to "Offline" as well.
Note: To put a site back online, click on the "Edit" link from the Site Details Screen, then click on the green "Put Online" button.
