I have a somewhat interesting request. I manage a web server for a number of businesses. a few times now, our hosting company networks have failed (99.99% uptime)…
After the second time, we are pretty fed up, but stuck, because we can’t go to all of our clients DNS providers, and update the A record to point to a different server.
So instead, I have come up with an idea, which I am sure is not novel.
I want to go through one last time, and point our clients A record to a static IP. Then that IP can send ALL traffic to a 2nd IP. Therefore, if 2nd IP ever goes down, I can go into this tool, wherever it is, and change the 2nd IP to a 3d IP on a different server, and not have to go into everyones DNS again.
It’s been rough finding a good solution. I have contacted most of the major cloud providers, and they only offer jury rigged ways of doing this. I was hoping to find a service that could do this.
