Wix Editor: Unpublishing Your Site

Unpublish your site if you no longer want it to be accessible to the public. You may wish to unpublish your site if you're taking it down for maintenance, redesign, or you simply no longer need it. After unpublishing, you'll still have access to your site's Editor and you can publish it again at any time.
Unpublishing your site does not cancel your domain or Premium plan. Learn how to cancel your domain or Premium plan.
