I don't want anyone to be able to see my new WP site until a day or two after I upload it. How can I make my site private while I test it?

Hello Montanayank,

Thanks for the question! The solution is actually very simple. You can get a free plugin from for something called Maintenance Mode. We have an article that will describe it for you: Enabling Maintenance Mode on Wordpress. Check it out and let us know if you need any further assistance.
