You can set a ftp login for the domain so that when you browse to the url via the browser it will pop up a window requesting your login credentials. Since Google (and other search engine robots) does not have the login info it cannot index the site.
MAMP is the best option! I think it's better to upload finished site to FTP because Google can index your unfinished site and it will be bad for future ranking.
Here a site url as an example: www.as pensystemsd irect.com (remove two spaces)

My solution was to put a landing page as the hierarchy is http://sitename.com/default.htm or html and then move the whole site to a different folder (with a robots.txt file) but I'm concerned that might mess up the link to the database.. Your solution seems a little easier.

Keep in mind that if you are using .htaccess file you will need to rename/remove it or else it may not work.
With that said, you could use .htaccess to block users from certain folders as well. I don't have the logic but it only requires just a few lines to make it work. Google it.
