Having issues with clients not paying you? Our latest hosting feature helps put a stop to that, allowing you to quickly and instantly suspend any site until you get paid.
Over the years we’ve heard every imaginable client horror story from our web developer members.
One of the most common being when website clients don’t pay for hosted sites on time (or at all!).
If you’ve ever been in this boat, you’ll be happy to hear we’ve just released a new hosting feature allowing you to suspend and unsuspend sites quickly and easily!
You can also add custom suspension messages to any hosted site, right from your Hub site management dashboard.
As you’ll see, suspending a site can be done with any WPMU DEV Hosting account in a few clicks.
When a site is suspended, the content doesn’t go anywhere – so it’s just a matter of unsuspending it to bring a WordPress site back to normal.
Here’s a quick look at how it’s done!

How to Suspend a Hosted WordPress Site From The Hub
If you need to suspend a hosted site for you or your client, click on the website you’d like to suspend in The Hub.
There are two ways to get started.
Method 1: Hosting > Tools
One method is to go to the Hosting cloud icon and select Tools.
Scroll down to the Suspend Site area and click Off. This will initiate changing it to a suspended site.
Method 2: Ellipsis > Suspend Site
Another quicker option is to click the ellipsis next to any hosted site. This will open up a dropdown where you click Suspend Site.
Either way, if you click Suspend Site, you’ll get a message to ensure you want to proceed.
It’s just a reminder that the site will receive a 503 Error and that you’ll be charged normally for hosting.
