DNS configuration

In order to direct traffic to the recovered website, then you will need to edit the DNS configuration of your domain to set your "www" CNAME record to point at host.webserverdown.com, This is typically done at the website where you bought your domain name, most common registrars are covered here.

Future proofing

If your website is currently working, but you'd like a backup for a rainy day, then you can do that now. By availing of our monthly plan, then you can create a hot-backup of your website, and if anything happens to your website then you can switch to backup by changing your DNS.
