I have a strange issue happening with a new site. It keeps going down and shows under construction, but after I login to WP admin, the site comes back up! Any suggestions as to what might be going on here? Thanks!

There is not really enough information here to answer the question. Please add debugging information, disable your plugins and switch to a default theme. Then edit the question with information gained from those tests. – s_ha_dum May 20 '13 at 16:18

That's probably because the site is visible for admin but not for public. This might be due to a maintenance plugin or a code in functions.php or in htaccess.

This could also be due to a cache issue. In this case try to delete the cache.
