    Simplest way is to create a temporary page pointing the users in the right direction, with a META redirect in the HEAD of the document:

    <META http-equiv="refresh" content="5; url=http://www.new_server.com">

    Change the numeric quantity of "content" up or down to send the redirect sooner or later. And don't forget to have a simple text message with a link, in case users are using older browsers that don't recognise META redirects.
