If you host your own Web sites, chances are they may have to go down for a while during the
relocation process. Begin communicating this fact to customers, clients, employees, and business
partners well in advance. Consider a message such as the following. Customize it how you see fit and
simply copy and paste the text into an e-mail.
We are relocating our business on [date]. As a result, our site will be temporarily unavailable
between the hours of [X] and [Y]. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
