Well as Kuldeepchaturvedi said if Web Server is down it cant serve any page at all fpoyavo, the is no way you can do it you'll get a DNS erro from you browser but not from the server.

One question then. Where this "Page is not available" coming from ? I remember I did custom one in IIS. Is anything like this on Linux ?
And how do some site make this possibly to see "Site is under maintenance etc...". ?

That page is server from the Browser as I said before, there are a variety of pages served from the server like not found, forbiden, etc. but this one is from your own browser becose no one can give a response to your request, sometimes if you're using a Proxy it will give it to you but not necesarily.

I trried creating a DNS error and this is what the property of the page says..

res://C:\WINDOWS\System32\shdoclc.dll/dnserror.htm

which means that the page is getting generated on the client only not the being served by anything......
