Disabling an active domain?


#1

I have a fully hosted domain I’d like to simply disactivate for a short period of time. I don’t see such as option unless I remove the Domain completly and lose all of my html docs.

What are my options?
Thanks

Have you considered just renaming the directory that contains your domain?

If you did that, and then created a new “/home/username/yourdomain.tld” directory and left it empty, it would display an empty directory. or you could put a “Message” page up in that directory as index.html.

(I had to do that once, years ago, when I had a client that didn’t pay - the “Account Suspended” message worked wonders for getting the client to send payment. :wink: )
