Best website builder for a quick TEMPORARY website


I am going to build a website using wordpress but I need to find instructions and take some time doing that.
For reasons I do not want to get into I need to put up a temporary website that is not submitted to the search engines. I will wait until I get my wordpress website up and then submit that to the search engines.I also checked website builder video for help, but wasnt satisfied.
I was wondering if you think that weebly could be useful for building a very temporary website that I could quickly dismantle once I get my wordpress site up and running?
Would there be any problems with my domain name or my host or the search engines if I did the above strategy. I just need to bounce this off of some of you to see what you think.

Any help will be appreciated.
Thank you.

I do not think it is a good idea to have a temporary website running, especially if you'll use a free hosting to do this. You will sure lose traffic in doing this. It's more practical to instead create social media accounts first while waiting for the website. Once the site is up, you can add/connect and share the website link on your social media pages for your followers to click and visit.

I see that in WordPress, there's a function that can help you in this situation. Just go to Setting -> Reading and check to the option Search Engine Visibility - > Discourage search engines from indexing this site. With this way, you tell the search engine that not to index your site.

A temporary website can lose your traffic. I think you can use another alternative like social media.
