    I am guessing if I simply do not redirect rename Nameservers then the site will not show?

    Is this safe enough?
    And rename the htt access file?

    1] you can leave the index.php of the root domain empty if you want a white page to open, when the domain is accessed.

    2] you can redirect the maindomain . com, to your subdomain "sub.maindomain .com" by using the following code in the index.php file of the maindomain.
    3] or use an under construction image in the index.php file or any other html
