    New website 2

    Hi, I am about to start building my new website. I have bought the domain and will be buying a hosting package this week. If I want to build the site but don’t want anyone to be able to see it can I build it in a sub directory of the domain name and just have an under construction page showing if someone locates it? Thanks, Linda

    Hi Linda,

    I would avoid installing in a sub-directory as this will make it a bit more difficult for you going forward. I would use a plugin such as http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-maintenance-mode/. With this you can hide the site from Google and people until you have finished it :)
