    2 nameservers, 2 hosting companies, if one goes down go to the other

    Hi

    I have 2 hosting, I want to point my domain to both.
    In case one goes down then point it to the other.

    For example, lets say the first hosting gets hacked, how can I bypass it automatically to go to the second
    without waiting for the DNS to update. Its a bit hard to explain, I hope you understand.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    It can be done using some DNS hackery (I don't recommend it), however... you'd need to make sure the entire site was replicated and if theres a data base behind it, you could start running into Master < - > Master replication issues to keep the 2 in sync?
