How To Make A Subdomain Invisible To Public (3 posts)

    I am no longer utilizing a subdomain and want to make the website invisible to the public that might happen upon it, or find an old link. I want to still be able to access the admin area because there is information I want to use while building another site. Is there any way to do that, short of making every page/post private or putting the site in maintenance mode?

    I appreciate any advice, but I warn you that I am still a bit of a newbie (in case you couldn't tell !-)

    Thanks!

    There are published plugins that display a message and hide the site from anyone who is not logged in. You could also rename the subdomain so that any old links will stop working. It is also possible to protect the entire site with a server password (not a WordPress password), but that's probably overkill for your situation.

    Thank you for your response. I did find a plugin called "Hide My Site". Not really what I was looking for, but I guess it will work in the short term. Thanks!
