There are lots of free plugins that will help you do this and I’ve sourced a really simple one for you to use.

In your admin go to Plugins > Add New

In the Search field type type underconstruction as per below:

Click Install Now

Click Activate

Now go to Plugins > and click Settings under the underconstruction plugin.

Click On and then click Save Changes!

Now only a user logged into your website’s admin will be able to see the website – everyone else will be shown a simple under construction page.
