comment Is it possible to completely avoid a single-point-of-failure in a web back-end?
So unless I have a really tiny TTL this means the user experiences downtime until it expires. Seems like a sub-optimal solution.. basically eliminates DNS cache altogether.

But what happens if the DNS gave the browser an IP address of a machine in a data center that a moment later has gone down. Why would the browser retry different DNS servers? Won't it just assume the host is unreachable?

What happens if after the DNS query yields an IP address of a proxy server this server goes away? Will a browser know to perform a DNS query again? Or will it just see an unreachable host?

doesn't this rely on the browser to "do the right thing" and correctly try alternative DNS servers in case the IP it has already resolved is suddenly unavailable?

I mean after you send a few emails their server's stop accepting your SMTP authentication and direct you to a CAPTCHA page to unblock your account.

comment Sending mail through local MTA while domain MX records point to Google Apps
I want to send email from an address like: noreply@mydomain.com. Can I setup reverse DNS with my hosting provider with mydomain.com as the record or must is be some-host.mydomain.com? And if the latter, won't that necessitate sending email from address@some-host.mydomain.com?
