DNS Failover

In today's online economy, your business depends on 24x7 availability of your website. Even a brief outage can impact revenue generation and negatively affect your brand. the CloudFloorDNS failover service ensures that the moment we detect that your site is unavailable, your traffic will be re-routed to a backup server or page.

Our servers monitor the health of your services at regular intervals. If a problem is detected we re-route traffic according to rules you specify. We can also automatically re-route traffic back to the failed services once they are operational again.

  • CloudFloorDNS offers the DNS Industry's fastest Failover in as little as 10 seconds
  • Multiple fail-over options include real-time dns fail-over, failing over to a custom landing page, such as an alternate contact page, or failing over to an alternate URL. This way, your "store" is never closed to customers when a problem occurs.
  • Supports load balancing. Automatically remove failed nodes and restore them once they are working again.

In addition to monitoring your website or IP, CloudFloorDNS provides more than 14 different flexible test cases for Failover. For instance, we can monitor to ensure your mail servers are always up and working. We can verify your web page has not changed. We can confirm email is being delivered. Our systems go beyond the standard 'port open' check to verify systems are truly operating as they should be.

Please play the video below for an overview of how the system works and contact us if you have any questions.

Failover is an add-on available with all our DNS Services. All enterprise customers receive failover functionality domains as part of their plan.
