Dear experts,

I wish to know what is a better way to setup backup websites.

Here is my plan:

1. have a website hosted on Godaddy with xyz domain
2. have a website hosted in DMZ one on the web server (locally) with abc domain

In case the Godaddy website goes down, what will be a good way to allow the user to acces the website on the local web server?

Thanks

Use wget (https://www.gnu.org/software/wget/) to synchronise the websites
You can manually switch DNS to the DMZ website or if you are good at coding you can set up a script on a very reliable site to check if godaddy is alive (and the DMZ site) and redirect accordingly

It's quite a complicated system to manage and unless you have the money and time to spend it may be too much effort in which case something like CloudFlare may be the better solution
Generally the domain is the same, i.e. you don't change the domain name just have secondary backup

The keywords you are looking for are failover server/dns
