    temporary Failover solution

    My problem:

    I am hosting a site in location A and when I need to drop power to the data centre (for UPS/Generator testing) I have no active site to serve page requests for the published DNS entry. I would like to have an alternative IP address (different domain) to be able to show a 'Site under Maintenance' banner when the primary site is down. This alternative site can be in a different location (obviously) Any feedback is very welcome.

    That is possible, need a script to ping the site and automatically switch DNS after X minutes of timeout.
