    Looking for redundant/failover hosting

    Hi
    Some time ago I found at the internet a hosting company offering redundant/clustered/failover hosting where the servers are located in 2 different countries. Anybody knowing of companies offering such service?
    They donít have to have redundant databases but most offer redundant hosting of webpages and SSL

    Check out hostnine.com, I believe they offer this type of service and have servers in multiple locations. Also hostingzoom.com offers fail over hosting but I'm not sure if they have servers in multiple countries.

    I assume you need to start some search using google for that. I have to say I have found some web hosting service providers there
    ASPnix Web Hosting - ASP.NET, MS SQL, AJAX, Hyper-V
    Microsoft Hosting and Virtualization

    What about the company that you say you found - unless I'm misunderstanding what you're saying...

    What is your budget? *real* quality failover hosting is not going to be cheap so I hope you take that into account.

    What good is a website with SSL if the database back-end is offline. Great, so your site is failover and online but it reports "Cannot connect to database" so it might as well be offline.

    Hi

    I cannot find the site I found at that time!

    About price range - I have not decided yet - I need some prices to get an idea what it costs.

    The real backend is managed by another company.

    I don't know what to tell you, sorry.

    Depending on your needs, it starts at really expensive and goes all the way up to extraordinarily expensive in my experiences for true failover.

    But why have failover front-end and then have the back-end managed by somebody else when the back-end is just as important as the front-end if not moreso.

    As Mike said, you can't be turning the blind eye on the back end. Is it possible to bring in the database and store on the same server as the backend? If that's the case, failover can be accomplished.

    It looks to me like it's being hosted at GoDaddy - I even checked the IP and that's where it's pointing as near as I can tell.

    Perhaps a moderator can run a whois history.

    the dns is hosted at godaddy but the actual hosting is done via HostNine. If a tracert was done you could have seen that the IP address of backycorp.com was located in California. The IP I show during tracert is 174.34.141.162 which happens to be one of HostNine's Servers. If you would like you can use www.helphousehosting.net .info .org and those are hosted on HostNine Servers and use the DNS severs provided by HostNine/the custom ones they have allowed me to create.

    Very nice At least the corruption of their central VPS storage didn't affect you.
