    For each website, Media Temple has a site preview url. It looks something like this: http://url.s83596.gridserver.com/

    My site is up and running but I’d like google to not crawl that site since I don’t want any canonical problems or anything. Is there any Media Temple user here who has found a solution to this problem?

    Thanks Mark! I guess they do some kind of minor blocking which is why Google only indexes it if you make it public.

    I did actually ask them and they gave a similar robots.txt answer. I’m not really sure how to specifically block http://url.s83596.gridserver.com/ with the robots.txt – as far as I know you can block files and folders, not urls.

    But it seems it won’t be a problem since no one else has really complained about this before.

    Thanks again

    You can also request a URL removal via Google Webmaster:
