I would encourage everyone when updating their websites to always leave a site posted. You can do the new one with different name for the index file and then when ready to launch simply change that file to index. If you remove your page for a time period then you may have people look for it and get page not found error and think you are no longer operating. Using a different opening name will keep most people out of the new and allow you to have people review it. This is approach I used in both major update in the past 3 years I have done to the state site.
