DNS Failover service from ClouDNS keeps your sites and web services online in the event of a system or network outages. It makes the life of DNS administrators easier!
DNS Failover is a technology mechanism that automatically updates DNS records if something goes wrong with a DNS name server on the network. When a failure is detected, DNS Failover will be activated to execute different actions to keep your availability. Depending on how you set it up it can only notify the problem, or to solve the issue by giving users a different IP address from an alternative server.
With DNS Failover you can also migrate traffic between redundant network connections.
DNS Failover service is configured on A and AAAA records which point to IP addresses. ClouDNS monitoring nodes check your primary IP address every minute. You can set up the monitoring servers to check if your IP is responding correctly to PING, HTTP(S), DNS, TCP, or UDP requests.
As soon as your primary IP fails to respond, your DNS is instantly updated on all ClouDNS nameservers globally to point to a working backup IP address or just to disable the failed IP address during the downtime.
You will receive an e-mail notification for every change of the DNS records.
Our DNS failover system monitors your servers every single minute and will keep you updated on the status of your services.
ClouDNS is designed to operate as cloud-based infrastructure service. Our self-developed system for synchronization and data distribution allows our customers to monitor in real time the DNS zones status at each location. Our infrastructure synchronizes your settings simultaneously across all POPs (points of presence), so no additional action is required from your side, once you set up your zones.
No downtime = better performance (purchases, revenue, ROI, etc.)
