Hi Eliane,
If you want to stop people accessing your site you could password protect all your pages except your index page.
Then only your index page can be accessed.

To password protect a page do the following:
1.Open your site in the sitebuilder.
2.Click the Site Manager tab.
3.Scroll down to the bottom of the list with your pages.
4.Click on 'Site Password Protection'
5.Assign your self a login and password in the top right corner of the box.
6.Select which pages you want to protect by clicking the check box next to the page name.
7.Click Ok.

Hope this helps.
