External Support Site
I currently have one server to host my website clients on and my website itself.
Is there anyway of having my support / client area on a different server and setup so if my clients server goes down my support area will stay up?
Domain.com -> Clients Server
my.Domain.com -> Support Server
If you don't understand what I mean, feel free to say and I'll try to reword it to make it easier.
Yes you can do this very easily and its a good idea.
As your a webhost I will assume you know how to host sites... so... Whats your question?
Thats exactly what we do.
We opertate our clients site on one server, and operate and maintain both our website/helpdesk on another so if one goes down, our clients can contact us for support.
Its a good idea, and I believe most hosts already do something similar.
try it out, may be beneficial for you.
How do I forward the my.Domain.com to the IP and location of the support website?
If I use a forward url it will just cloak the my.Domain.com or just show the IP in the browser. I'd prefer to have it like:
my.Domain.com/order.php when they go to order.php instead of just my.Domain.com
Just set the A record for my.domain.com. to point to the IP of the other server and that's it.
well first setup an account for my.domain.com on another server, and get the IP address that it is assigned to.
then add a DNS A entry for it. Remeber tho, if you host your dns server on the same server as domain.com it wont be much use.
Note to self: Add something funny!
