The interesting app_offline.htm file

For those that’s still in the dark about this cool feature, here’s the lowdown on it.


If you put a app_offline.htm file inside your asp.net application, on the next request, ASP.NET will shutdown the app domain and return the contents of the file in response to all dynamic asp.net requests. This way, you can easily take down your site for maintenance and updates and then bring it right up by deleting the file once you are done!
