Azure - Adding Wesite Maintenance Page

Hi,

I have a site hosted in windows azure. Here is what my client wants :

1) The site should show maintenance page during site deployment
2) After site deployment is done, during  BVT  we need to show maintenance page until completion of BVT on the site. Any users will hit the site, will see the maintenance page & only engineering/Test team can see the site content.

How can we achieve this in windows azure. I am using ASP.NET MVC application.

Thanks

Just replace error page with maintenance page.

set your default page to: maintenance.html, the designers will have to go to http:\\example.com\default.aspx, when complete set your default page to default.aspx

My application is a MVC application, if my default page set to maintenance.html also, if a person knows the url, he can type the url & start seeing the content.
Make a new small site with maintenance page and direct your site front-end to that site.
Sure if somebody knows IP of your backend thay still can connect to your site.
