I'm currently designing a site for a client and I don't want anyone to be able to navigate to the homepage and see it. So currently the site is located in a subfolder of the main domain. Like so: http://gointrigue.com/beta/
What steps do I need to take to move the site to simply http://gointrigue.com/ when we are ready to launch it?
Or, is there a way to move it there right now, while I'm still developing it, and simply hide the homepage from the outside world while I can still see it? The only reason I decided to develop it in a subfolder like /beta/ was because I didn't know how to stop other people from seeing the homepage while still allowing myself to see it.
What's the easiest, simplest answer here? Your help is greatly appreciated!
