If my dedicated server crashes is it the responsiblty of the host to know that it's crashed and rectify it or will the server stay down until i get it sorted? Sounds a silly question but i am looking for my 1st dedicated server and i get the impression that you're on your own with dedicated servers.
Also, backing up my site - should i just have a standard back up and wait fot the server to come back up or mirror it so that when it crashes then the 2nd one kicks in so that there is no down time.
Just a couple of questions there, may be simple to you all. i am having someone manage the server for me but i would just like to know how it all works.
Cheers in advance for your answers
