I just started developing my website, and I was wondering if it was ok to leave it up as I work on it, or do I have to take it down until it is finished? I don't want to get into any trouble over that. Thanks
If you have spread the word about your site before its finished, What I usually do is make a Under Construction picture & stick it as the index page saying come back later. But under that I also leave a shoutbox or a irc chat box for people to chat until the site is finished.
Something else you can do is create a sub-directory that contains all of your projects/websites, and a generic index.htm in your "root" (not actual root, obviously). I also tend to have various projects/websites that I work on sporadically. I want there to be something users see if they visit my URL, so I typically throw together something about myself and/or links to the various projects.
