http://serverfault.com – How can I take a redirected web application offline such that the user sees the page only for scheduled maintenance and not when the server has just crashed, or is otherwise unavailable? As I understand, for a hosted app I could simply define a custom error page, and stop the application pool. That doesn't work for redirected sites though, as they do not exist in any AppPool. (HowTos)
