Can I point a domain to two web hosting services by adding A records in my DNS Records?

What happens if I do that?

    You'd basically be doing en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Round-robin_DNS. Some users will wind up on one host, some on the other. They might switch mid-session, so if you've got sessions or a database you'd have to have them be synced up. It gets quite complicated. – ceejayoz Sep 15 '20 at 14:04

Can you do that?

  • Yes you can.

What happens?

  • ~50% of all visitors that tries to visit your website will either visit SERVER-A or SERVER-B. It is called "Round Robin DNS".
