Normally to bring any Live Application Offline, either we thought of making few fixes in IIS or may be in the applications code.
However, below are the two quick approaches to achieve the same.
Make Application Offline:
1. Add below to your web configuration file:
<httpRuntime enable="false" />
2. Add a file with the name app_offline.htm to the root of your application.
Now if you try acccessing any page of the Web Application, you can't.
Note: It is not a recommended approach. It is just a quick fix...
