    Hosting with 1and1 and two of my main sites are down because they have a server problem.

    How can I prevent this? Do I just have a second host and make a change to the dns when the main goes down?

    if you want to do it properly you need a pair of servers and a hardware load balancer with auto failover abilities, you can use someones socalled cluster hosting or whatever but rarely are these as good as they claim
