How it Works

DNS Made Easy's monitoring nodes check to ensure your primary IP is responding every 2 to 4 minutes. As soon as any of your services fail to respond from at least two different geographic monitoring locations, your traffic will automatically be moved to a different system. This minimizes the amount of downtime that would result from an outage. If used in conjunction with our System Monitoring service, an email will be sent immediately notifying your contact email address or contact list of the outage.

The system then issues a check of your secondary IP to ensure it is responding before traffic is redirected. As long as your back-up IP is available, then the change of IP address is made using DNS Made Easy's Peregrine Instant DNS Propagation.

Once the process is complete, we continue to monitor your primary IP address. You can customize this feature to automatically failback appropriately once the original IP address is back online based on your monitoring criteria.

NOTE: This service is integrated with the DNS Made Easy Enterprise Managed DNS solution. Your domain must be managed with DNS Made Easy for you to use this product.
