In this video, Chaim Krause achieves georedundancy by using a third-party service that provided secondary, or slave, name servers. You, of course, can use your own name servers if you have them available.
- [Instructor] Name servers are critical…to the functioning of the internet.…For all intents and purposes, if the name servers go down…the internet comes to a halt.…But thankfully many a score people have thought about this…and pretty close to a universal solution is redundancy.…Your domain may only be a tiny piece…of the internet as a whole,…but you too need to worry about redundancy.…Secondary or slave name servers serve this purpose.…They exist mainly to take over…if a primary or master name server becomes unreachable.…But a secondary name server does you no good…if they're both in the same building…when fiber cable gets cut by the construction crew.…
Geographical redundancy is also widely employed.…At first this may seem difficult…if you are a single small business or a hobbyist…who wants to get their own domain up and running,…but it turns out that there are many…third party solutions to get you redundant name server…spread around the world.…You will need to provide these services…with information about your domain name…
