    nameserver question

    if i wanted to mirror a site for backup purposes in case one server is down, would it be as simple as adding another server's name server's under the ones i currently have?

    does the browser call the name server's in order from top to bottom and then go to the first one it gets? if not how does the process work?

    thanks!

    it call them randomly

    and its nice idea to add more nameservers if your primary goes down, secondaries takes over.

    but if you meant if serverA goes down serverB takes over thats different story.

    Your talking about load balancing/failover which can be accomplished with certain pieces of hardware and software but that is not a low cost solution. Most "budget" minded folks accept 99% uptime and don't ever think about redundancy.
