    * DNS Question - Backup DNS Service


    I'm interesting in setting up a backup/secondary dns service for all my domains. I am running BIND on my own server (with DirectAdmin) but I've had issues in the past where BIND goes down, maybe for several hours, and all the domains that were pointing to name servers are no longer working.

    I'd like to set it up so all my existing domains continue to point to and (so no changes needed on client domains) but somehow have actually resolve to a different name server that has all my records.

    I know offers "backup DNS" but I haven't been able to figure out how to set this up. Can someone give me noob steps on what I need to do on my server, at Godaddy, and on the site?

    Or if you know a different service that offers this, please suggest.
