Point Multiple IP Addresses to a Single Host Name

I want a host name such as "www.dacracot.org", to point to multiple IP addresses, "1.2.3.4" and "1.2.3.5".

Is this set up by my DNS people? What is the correct terminology?

It is called Round robin DNS; Yes it is set up at the DNS level. All you have to do is add mutiple A records to your Nameserver. Be fore warned, It is not the best load balancing/redundant solution. Have a look at Even's post here for more info Uneven round-robin DNS (i.e. not round-robin)?

  • So I have redundant load balancing set up behind the two addresses I want pointed to as the same host. Will clients switch to 1.2.3.5 if 1.2.3.4 goes down? – dacracot Apr 5 '11 at 20:01
