Downtime - How can it be avoided?
One of my main sites, Net-Ads has been hosted with ICOM since 1998. During that time I've seen my share of downtime, but this week has been a record-breaker, with the site down almost solidly for the past 48 hours (without notice, and with no responses to calls/emails seeking support).
Of course, this time I've made the decision to move, and established an account elsewhere (OLM) a few hours ago.
My question is, is there any way to overcome downtime remotely in cases when a host experiences an extended outtage? For example, are there any third-party namservers that are highly reliable, and which hosts support as secondary servers that can be configured to direct users to a mirror when the primary site is down? And, if these are used, is there any propagation delay associated with this?
Feel free to speak to me as though I'm an idiot if the answer is obvious. Hosting's not exactly my forte. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/wink.gif
(Side note: if anyone has tried to email me during the past few days, there's a good chance that it hasn't yet reached my inbox due to this reason, so please be patient.)
