Go to

Admin panel -> System -> Configuration -> General (Left) -> Web > Default Pages ->  CMS Home Page

Select your new page from Upper left corner's drop-down.


In the admin you go to System -> Configuration -> Web -> Default Pages

You will have to change to the website / store view that you want to change (the dropdown in the upper left corner).

Just Rename folder:

This will block the store front site and allow only admin panel access.
