Recommendation for internet connection failover for website with SSL

mnkings asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I'm curious what people usually do when they have an SSL cert on their website, hosted at the office and they have a backup internet connection. How do people failover to the backup IP address on the backup internet connection (backup internet connection is a completely seperate provider etc.). So I have ssl.site.com resolve in DNS to x.x.x.x, which is an IP on my firewall. I also have a backup internet connection on another port on the firewall with a completely different public IP. How do I get ssl.site.com to resolve to the new address. I assume I would either have to run 2 of my own DNS servers or pay for a service like this? Any help is appreciated!
