Web Server - Failover solution

Last Modified: 2013-11-05
I have a client that hosts their webserver internally at their office.   They would like a solution that would repoint their website  -  www.mycompnay.com  -  to an external server if their internal T1 or internal webserver goes down.    they don't mind having a 2nd server offsite somewhere for this purpose.

The reason they can not put their current server offsite is that they are updating it on a regular basis and have a database on it that they use.   They can upload the data a couple of times a week to the offsite server to keep it somewhat fresh in case of an emergency.
