You can simple create a page and put a label with message "Application is decommissioned" (Say Default.aspx, which is generally a landing page, if you want to give a different name to the page set that page as landing page, so whenever your site is accessed your message is displayed)

Alternatively,
You can simply take down an ASP.NET application offline temporarily by uploading a file called App_Offline.htm in the root of a web application directory.  When App_Offline.htm file exists, any requests to the Web site are redirected to this file. The file displays a friendly message that tells clients that the Web site is being updated or down due to some reasons or decommisioned
