I have decided to start using DNS Made easy for my external DNS but can't deside really if I should go for the $30 or $60/year plan. The smaller plan probably covers my current need as I only have 5 domains and probably wont extend beyond 10 within a year. But the larger plan has DNS failover included which make sit attractive as its value is half the extra cost. From reading their pages I'm still not clear over what it offers exactly. I mean, my web server goes down right so it redirect traffic to new location and as their page say "you don't have to worry about installing any special software or scripts on any of your systems. We take care of all of the work for you." So does it mean they cache a copy of my domain including web site to be served until my server comes up again or what?
It sounds a bit too good to be true though and I suspect some detail have been left out as "you need to have another server somewhere that can jump in and runs a copy of your site, or at least a page giving some useful information" or? I ask here as I got the impression from reading that several frequent visitors use their services and can tell exactly how it is from an inside perspective?
Not that $30 would make a big hole in the wallet exactly but by priciple I don't like to waste resources on something not needed, so would be grateful if someone could help me to get clear on this.
