Creating 2 sites with similar URLs
duplicate content, mirror

I'm considering launching a site with twin URLs (< example.com and examples.com >).

The content would be basically the same with some variations, and I'd have them each on different hosts, and different registrars. They'd generally target the same family of keywords.

I'm doing this in part to leverage against any host outages, etc. and other reasons, including the targeting of very slight variations in my target market.

How likely is it that Google would penalize one or both of them?

Very.

It's a very bad idea.

Wont work, one will get filtered, possibly the one you dont want to be filtered. I wouldn't risk it. If the purpose is to protect as a backup for visitors, make sure you disallow the entire site using robots.txt.

DNS allows you to specify more than one IP address for your domain name; so surely you can use that for failover?

One domain name with multiple servers, each one at a different IP address.

Google occupies more than 800 IP addresses for all their search servers, and your browser is always sent 3 or 4 IP addresses to choose from on each access to their domain name.
