Website: Possible to Show an Agreed Page if Hosting Server is Down?


If a my website hosting goes down, is it possible to somehow show a default 'maintenance' page showing some text and images?

If it is, what's the best way of handling this?

No, if the hosting server is down there is no server to show the page.  While sites like Google have many servers, most of us on shared hosting only have files on one server.  When it's down, it's all down.
