For me the best way is to hold the password untill the payment is complete

He still has the site online even if you hold password. You must state your terms in your proposal at onset so if you suspend or put offline, he cannot raise dust.

Also do your site on a demo folder not main directory for them to see. After getting satisfactory payment, redirect domain to it

Do you mean the obfuscation/encoding method where the code self destructs after some time? Well that's one way but here's a better way that I have used and will never stop using... the client can accept it or go.

In the agreement it is clearly stated that a particular percentage (not less than 50%) will be collected before work starts and on completion all the project will be uploaded to a temporary location on my domain for the owner to fully test it and make sure it complies to all his requirements. After all the back and forth revisions and the client is happy with the whole job, he pays up the balance before the files are transferred to him.

In other words I will NEVER take a site LIVE or hand files over to the owner until its fully paid for. If they don't want, they should go... and by the way I haven't seen a serious client who has refused or tried to amend that part of the agreement... its not even subject to amendment.
