    Hello All,

    I have a site say blahblah.com that sometimes get down. This site is hosted at hostingcompanyA and has name servers as follows : ns1.hostingcompanyA and ns2.hostingcompanyA

    Now, in order to keep my site running when hostingcompanyA down, I also host the site at secondary host, hostingcompanyB with name servers ns1.hostingcompanyB and ns2.hostingcompanyB

    Then I add new name servers information to my domain so that the name servers are:
    ns1.hostingcompanyA
    ns2.hostingcompanyA
    ns1.hostingcompanyB
    ns2.hostingcompanyB

    Can this be done?, are there any risk associated with Google using this technique?.

    Regards,
    Andy

    Andy,
    This won't solve your problem if the actual server is down. Nameservers tell the domain name where to point to...if the first nameserver fails, it will look to the second...if the second fails,then to the third and so forth. Rarely does the first one fail anyhow. These are nameservers only, and not the server itself. If your server fails, the domain name will still point to that server (The nameservers doing their job). Hope that makes sense [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    If you are having that many problems with your host, I would recommend finding another host. Yes, I may be biased in that statement, but even if it isn't us, a quality host will have fewer issues. I wouldn't count on exactly 100% from anybody, but most quality hosts can come close. For example, we experience very little downtime. The last time we had a server down was several months ago during our upgrade and relocation. That downtime consisted of 2 spurts that lasted for less than 1 minute each while we threw the switch. It occured in the 2am hour, one of our most quiet times. Anyhow, if you ask here in ABW about others downtime, you should be able to find a host without a lot of downtime.
