Not directly, but there are several ways to do it via simple IIS configuration changes. You can just change the home page for your site to something else than default MonoX page. Of course, that would not prevent people from going to your MonoX pages directly (if they know the address), so you could open two sites in IIS, and bind the real domain to the temporary site, while working on some subdomain/virtual folder name for MonoX.
As for the newsletter supscription module, depending on your version, you might have a NewsletterSubscription.ascx in the MonoX/Samples/WebPartSample/Newsletter folder. If you don't have it, we will port the source here.

Is this feature is on the roadmap for monox ? like having a site close page where admin can close the site and still maintain the site from the backend.

Like having a checkbox option in admin site something like: Site closed "Enable" "Disable"

If enable, if anyone tried to visit the website will be redirected on the page :www.monoxwebsite.com/siteclosed

This would be great to have and I hope other monox users will like this feature as well.

Not currently, but you are welcome to add it to the roadmap forum, and there is enough interest, it will be adde to one of the next releases.

As I wrote in the roadmap topic in this forum and in my earlier e-mail message to you, you can do it in the newly opened roadmap forum.

Yes i did read all that but there is no reply option to add comments on the roadmap sticky / thread: http://www.mono-software.com/Mono/Pages/Discussion/dtopic/arpjE9Tgm06ED6C-ANbB_Q/Current-roadmap/

since this "Current Roadmap" topic is closed and i can't add anything to it as comment or reply, do you want me to create a new topic for each feature that i would like to request ?

That's correct, go ahead and add a topic per request - otherwise we would have one long comment list that would be difficult to manage.
