    Preposition "for"

    I'd like to translate for an internet site the hint "Closed for maintenance". My best is "Закрыт для подержания". I wonder if "для" is the correct preposition here.

    Someting else: is there a suitable russian word for "reset" (the fields in a form, name address, etc to default or void)?

    "Закрыто на ремонт" и "сброс"
    Russian is tough, let’s go shopping!

    Сайт? На ремонт? Странновато как-то. Тут скорее подойдёт что-нибудь вроде "Техническое обслуживание".

    "Сайт закрыт на техобслуживание"
    "Сайт закрыт на профилактику"

    Both are used.
