    The best HTTP status code for your maintenance page is "503 Service Unavailable": The server is currently unable to handle the request due to a temporary overloading or maintenance of the server. The implication is that this is a temporary condition which will be alleviated after some delay.

    HTTP 503 - Service Unavailable
    4 Answers. HTTP 503 - Service Unavailable would be the most appropriate. The Web server (running the Web site) is currently unable to handle the HTTP request due to a temporary overloading or maintenance of the server.

    503 Service Unavailable - The server is currently unavailable (this could be due to overload or maintenance). Search engines will know that this is a temporary state. This status code should be used when taking down a site for maintenance.

    to create another app on the same web server.
    create httpmodule or httphandler to handle any url request and 302 redirect them to the maintenance page.

    503 service unavailable HTTP status
    If you absolutely have to serve a 5XX error message, for example when you're taking a site down for maintenance, you should always use the 503 service unavailable HTTP status code.
