We have moved a webapplication and would like to display a message in the old IIS. Let's say that the application was in http://oldserver/appname/. How do I make sure that our moved.html is displayed to the user no matter which uri the user browsed in to (in that virtual folder)?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Suggestion: Consider just using the 301 redirect suggested by Nathaniel bellow, without the message. Search engines will transfer pagerank (or similar indicator) to the new URL. With a message that might not happen. Search engines will think the content was deleted and will not transfer it to the new URLs. – Osvaldo Apr 9 '11 at 16:22
