There might be times where you want to redirect all incoming visitors of your site to a certain page. Perhaps you only want to have that redirection active during a certain timespan. But perhaps this timespan is exactly during the weekend and you are somewhere during that time where you do not have internet access so you cannot FTP in and make the changes...
