This is the entire code I am using for my page - it is only a basic page for now before I build a better one later as this is a temporary fix while we rebuild the site.
When I change the URL to
<title>Welcome To site name</title>
<center> <img src="logo01.gif" ></center>
<p><center><h2> Due to ongoing technical difficulties, some users may experience delays or outages with the site name site.</h2></center></p>
<p><h1><b> <center><font color=#076C9F>SITE NAME IS CURRENTLY BUSINESS AS USUAL!!! </font><b></center></h1></p>
<p><h3><b><center> <font color=#FFFFFF>The sites technical team, (TechTeddy and Snoozz), will be working on the site over the coming days and as a result there may be short periods of downtime. Please bare with us and keep checking back frequently. Currently it is business as usual and we hope to have everything 100% as soon as possible.</font></h3><b></center></p>
<p> <center>If you have any difficulties or questions, please feel free to contact any of the members of the admin team and they will do their best to help you.</center></p>

Like I said, I just get the instant redirect but at least it is redirecting.
