If you have webhosting server with vultr.com, there will be a scheduled down time for some customers. Luckily it’s 5am UTC time which is somewhat like midnight in the USA, so hopefully no major impact but the down time is quite long like 4 hours scheduled. So to prepare if you get this message below from vultr.com you can setup a redirect link or something to indicate your site is temporary down for maintenance this way it doesn’t expose your actual web hosting server vulnerable of being hacked and exploit during the boot up or down time process.
