Lately my website and several others under the same reseller account have been experiencing increased downtime. Mind you, we're talking about a couple of minutes at most per day, but as my traffic grows those minutes will cost me more. Looking around, I've been incredibly impressed by the Failover Web Hosting provided by Hosting Zoom.
There are several advantages to this technology:
- cPanel is a familiar hosting control panel environment, many hosting clients could very easily transfer their entire account over with the backup/restore tool.
- Individual website performance would be improved, by distributing bandwidth across multiple servers within a cluster.
- All email, web, and database data are replicated in real time. This means that if one server fails, traffic is simply re-routed to an operational server, and no data is lost!
