Is there any way to deactivate a sharepoint site?

Here's my problem: We've created a development environment that we've modified and added new features to. Now, we have a production environment that we need to update but rather deactivate and just import all the existing data from the development to the production. Instead of removing the production I would like to rename it just in case we need to bring it back online or just deactivate it. Overall, just need to make sure we can bring the old site from sharepoint back up to production if anything happends.

All you have to do is save the site(s) as a template with content and then you can recreate anytime.

Glenna, I thought that you are limited to something like 10 MB when saving a site as a template? (which includes the content)

True.
Some renaming options for you:
In MOSS 2007:
1. Go to the site.
2. Site Settings
3. Under the Look and Feel Header, Click on Title, description, and icon link
4. The last editable field lets you change the URL.
