    Gateway page

    Hello,

    Currently I have my site hosted in with shared hosting, and I am moving it over to a VPS. The domain is with the shared hoster and I know how to move the domain over to my VPS hoster.

    I want to move my domain over to my VPS hoster so that it will be easier to move my site over.

    My question is how would I go about creating some sort of gateway saying "Down for Maintenance, please come by later" for everyone to see and not be able to navigate the site....except for me as I move my site over?

    I know this is a bit confusing but if you could help me out that would be great!

    when I have done it several times, I upload the site to the new server, I switch the dns to point to the new site and, when the new site is live, the old one goes away, when the account is closed. no need for a maintenance page then as it switches quickly from one to the other.

    Why do some people say "I don't know for sure"? If they don't know for sure then, they don't know!
