When messing with our webservers, I always hate the timeout message people get.
I really want to set up a sitedown page.
The http://www.stevenhargrove.com/redirect-web-pages/ article shows how to display a sitedown IF the httpd/apache/iis is running, not if the server itself is down.

Our external DNS for www points to .90.
I then can change our firewall to point .90 to a different server internally than the webserver instantly.
That works for www.domain.com but not for www.domain.com/help, so I need to modify this temp server to automatically point to this error page specific to the domain.

I am thinking this fake server would have hostname direction and then using the methods in the article to point it to a page.

Anyone attempt this or know a more elegant way?
