    Hello :) I believe the Web Template Editor could be what you are looking for: "WHM Home " Account Functions " Web Template Editor" Per it's description: The Web Template Editor allows you to create placeholder web pages. These pages will appear to visitors who navigate to a site on your server that: Has not yet been configured by the domain owner (see the Default Website Page tab) Has moved (see the Account Move tab) Is experiencing a connection or firewall problem (see the Connection Selection tab) Has been suspended (see the Account Suspended tab) Thank you.

    Thanks for the pointer but its a bit too intrusive and permanent for what I"m looking for. Intrusive in that it writes files to the accounts public_html directory and permanent in that I read it as a "catch all" option which prevents visitors progressing on to access the sites actual content. My hope is for something more temporary and informative like a simple banner along the bottom of the site which the user can easily dismiss or fades away after a number of seconds. "Please note essential site maintenance will take place between Date1 & Date2. Users may experience delayed responses for 30mins during this time. For more information please consult"" My hope is to avoid issues with support calls to the site ownere or hosting company for planned maintenace but where its not possible to notify everyone or even identify everyone beforehand who may be affected and its at least better to flag it in advance. The site woudl still be accessible to visitors so they could accomplish what they wanted to before the maintenace takes place The feature could also be used to highlight a new site design coming soon or similar improvement again where the site owner can't accomplish it using their own site and would like cPanel or WHM to do it

    There is no native functionality for that type of system at this time. You can open a feature request for this via: Submit A Feature Request Thank you.

    Thanks infopro but that modules development looks inactive to me judging by the last time it was updated and the broken links to the download. Is it something that others thing would be useful ?
