If you want to unpublish your site, you can choose to hide it from search engines.

 

To hide your site from search engines: From the left side of the Editor, click Settings > click SEO (Google) > click the toggle Allow search engines to find my site to turn this option off (change from green to red) > click Done.

Once you have clicked the toggle be sure to hit Save inside your Editor!

Note: Your Wix domain will still be online. If you use your own domain, you can ask your domain hosting company to point it to another server.

Note: If you would like to temporarily remove your site from the web completely, you can place a notification on your home page and say it is under construction. Click here to learn how.

      Hi Stan,

       

      Thank you for contacting Wix support.

       

      You can change your username and site name, which will change your website URL accordingly. Please note that the format of a Wix URL is username.wix.com/sitename. To change your username: Sign in to your Wix account > click My Sites > hover over the user panel at the top right > click Account Settings > under User Name, enter your new username.


      To change your site name: Sign in to your Wix account > click My Sites > next to the relevant site, click Manage Site > on the right, under Handy Shortcuts, click Show More > click Rename.

       

      Please do not hesitate to contact us should you require any further assistance.

    when I try to publish my site it continues to say: "A problem in your site structure prevented us from saving your site. The good news is that it's already been fixed automatically!"

    but it wont let me save and publish. How can I fix this?

      Hello,

       

      This might have happened because the grid gallery in the home page was overlapping with the site's header.

      However, I've moved it for you and was able to publish your site!

       

      Please let us know should you require further assistance. 

      Kind regards, Or - Wix Support Team.

    Unpublish site

    I built a site and was ready to upgrade to the pro plan until I noticed that I cannot unpublish or take my a site offline? Even Weebly lets you do this! This should be a MANDATORY feature.

    Unpublishing website

    Hi

    I've cancelled my subscription and would like to unpublish my website for the moment.  I may wish to re-publish in the future.

    Is there a way to hide the site but not delete it?

    Many thanks
