    SImplest way is to put a coming soon page on your index.html page while working on the others. Just call the one your working on index.htm instead. The index.html page is the one visitors will see.

    You can use the redirect tool within cPanel to do this, however i am not sure (if the page is on the same server) if this will create a loop, and will not show the page.

    Another option however is to password protect the public_html temporary, this will provent everyone apart from people with the password to seeing your site... and you can also place a message in the login box explaining what is happening.

    To do this go to cPanel-->Password Protect Directories-->Select the top directory (/ (Current Folder) ) --> Add a new username and password in the boxes provided, hit 'Add User' --> Set the message you want displayed in the 'Protected Resource Name' box --> Click the tickbox next to the lock --> hit Save!
