HTaccess and re-direct

I would very much appreciate help in how to redirect from my multiple store installation (magento CE 2.1) to a coming soon page.


My host said :

Regarding your query on keeping the "coming soon" page, there are a couple of ways to do that. The Directory Index in .ht access can be changed to point to the coming soon page. Also a redirect could be added so all users except from a particular IP or IP range will be redirected to the coming soon page.


Ive search the forum for info but havent found what I need.


Thank you


Re: HTaccess and re-direct

Hi there, around line 33 of the .htaccess file you will find:


DirectoryIndex index.php


Change this to:


DirectoryIndex index.html index.php

Then upload your coming soon page as index.html


Once you are ready to go, simply delete index.html
