I have a shared Windows hosting account. It is fairly reliable but I need 100% uptime. Can you tell me if my idea is feasible? 1). Copy my current website to another shared hosting provider. 2). Set up an additional new linux account with root access. This account would login via ftp and copy the primary hosting database to the backup hosting database every 15 to 30 minutes. 3). Set up a failover DNS service like [url removed, login to view] 4). If primary hosting account goes offline, the failover DNS will automatically reroute traffic to backup hosting account. 5). If Linux account could not log into primary database, the automatic updates are suspended. 6). E-mail alert is sent from Linux account to me to check on primary server. Once primary server comes back online I would manually copy the backup database back to the primary server and then reset the DNS, and restore the linux account copy process from Primary server to backup server. Please tell me if this plan sounds feasible or if you see problems with any particular step. Also, is it possible to incorporate a failover DNS into the linux server? Once it is determined the idea is feasible, there will be a private auction to implement it.
