Would love a simple switch for a maintenance mode. Just turn off a property completely and show a user friendly landing (contrary to suspending).
Would love to see this added.
Right now my website shows "This service has been suspended by its owner." to 100+ real-time users
Please add this feature, or add the ability to redirect incoming requests to another render url via the dashboard. It seems a lot of other hosting solutions have this. Without it, we have to update CNAME records or the like. Thanks!
This would be extremely useful. Please consider it for the roadmap.
its a must if any company want to use render seriously like heroku
I fully second this feature request. Some actions such as database version upgrades, database plan downgrades etc can't be done without some downtime. A branded maintenance mode is a must for this. (Using e.g. the turnout Ruby gem might not work as planned when using multiple instances/autoscaling.) It's a great idea to serve a custom URL off a static site with status 503, an extra bonus would be the ability to set IP addresses which are allowed to bypass the maintenance mode.
Merged in a post:
It would be nice to be able to have a better down page than what is currently served. This could be done via a static site. Ideally there would be two:
1) maintenance - for when the service is suspended, like for DB ugprade or some other migration
2) down - when the service fails and is unable to re-start
Would also love to do this!
That would be very useful. Heroku offers it and even allows you to customize the template of the page.
