    How do I un-publish my Wix site until I want it to go live?

    Question

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Yes No Thanks for your feedback!

      You don't show your fucking Wix banners on the website until the end. Why not show it on the templates. Fucking assholes.
