On a ColdFusion site, what is best practice to Display "Shut Down for Maintenance"

I have to shut my ColdFusion web site down for a few hours to do maintenance.

I would like any visitors to see a page that says site is shut down until  3:00 PM Pacific Time.

I don't want them to see any other pages during shutdown.

How best to do this?

Also, is there a good way to have a pop up that a few hours before shutdown I can warn visitors?

thx that helped.  It didn't work as Ben said it would, but it gave me enough direction to do it on my own.  Thank you.

Thank you. Another way is to set it up in IIS
