Make sure ColdFusion notifies you if your site in inaccessible. Embed a hidden comment in your Application.cfm (or OnRequestEnd.cfm) and then create a probe to retrieve your home page (or any other page) checking for the presence of that comment. If failure occurs for any reason the probe can notify you via e-mail (perhaps forwarded to your cell phone or pager) and you’ll have the chance to fix the problem before your visitors discover it.
