I've set this up now. If is accessed by as,, or, then all URLs are
redirected to /please-hold/

Content on socket is in:


Config files are:

 /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/hold-page   [symlink]

You can test by adding to your /etc/hosts:

For,,, I've modified the
server configuration on the real server so that /please-hold/ is
redirected to the main page'; this is to make reload of the hold page
works nicely once the outage is over.

I made the server respond to, but on reflection, I
think I'm *not* going to repoint the DNS for, because
of our use for HTTPS - the user will get confusing scary behavior if
they go to a bookmarked HTTPS URL.
