I know that it is possible to set more than one IP for www.mydomain.com .
What I would like to achieve is when server A goes down visitors of the domain would be sent to backup server B but would still have www.mydomain.com as the address.
- I don't want to have this happen in random. IP1 & Server A should be the #1 first choice and ONLY if it is not there should a user go to server B IP2
=== Now I have tried this with one of my sites using NameServers at eNOM where it resides, but there is No way to set priority for IP 1 / Server A so my guess is that while it works for redundancy purpose it is not good for me if both servers share 50% of the load as I don't have equal resources on both servers. And if no priority can be set thre is no way to know which IP will get the bigger 'half' of the load...
- so anybody have any experience with this? - besides not being able to use dynamic content are there any other negative effects to having such a setup? - what would this do to SEO and Google ranking? - should I try and set the nameservers of the domain to: ns1.host-A.com ns2.host-A.com ns1.host-B.com ns2.host-B.com Or would that couse some conflicts in DNS?
