My current reseller account is using CPANEL/WHM as the control panel. I was thinking if I could make a backup to each site hosted on this account by using another account (backup) with other host that uses HSPHERE.
So when my current host/server goes down, the back up host/server will take over automatically.
To get clear picture of what I'm trying to say, so the dns setting of one site will be like this:
Some of my sites use those php scripts/features that were installed through FANTASTICO, and some are just static sites.
The purposes I'm doing this:
1. Back up for my current host/server (one of my client/a corporate client got penalized US$1000 because some documents didn't get to their emails due to server downtime, luckily he's one of my best friends, we're like brother to each other, so he didn't claim that US$1000 from me, and guess what?!! I had just been given a mercy, I mean another chance, final chance indeed! )
2. Learn to use Hsphere (as reseller and end user) as I'll surely provide windows/linux hosting soon.
3. Simply following the basic rule of 'not putting all eggs in one WOK' (geez, for people who always 'put their eggs in basket', those eggs must have been rotten. )
As usual, thanks a lot in advance for your thoughts, opinions, feedback, etc.
That particular setup will work, so long as you aren't running any database dependant websites, and you make a complete copy of your site when you make any changes, otherwise if your real nameservers are not available for even a brief amount of time, you will go to the backup site.
If you have a database dependant website, then you'll need to host it elsewhere, so both your real site, and backup can read and write to the same database.
If I understand you correctly, you are wanting to move archived files from CPanel to H-Sphere? If that is the case you will have to do it by hand, and one account at a time. H-Sphere cannot just create identical accounts from CPanel backups.
