You need to put a dual WAN router in front of the web server, so that you only have a single default gateway.
Then use a web based load balancing service to manage the traffic inbound.
That could be something like a Kemp load balancer in Azure.

You could put both IP addresses in to DNS, but DNS has no service availability, so if one line was down, traffic would still be sent to the down connection by DNS.

I don't understand what that post has to do with the original question.
If you have two lines in to the network, then you need to use a dual WAN router. Otherwise you will be unable to connect on the second connection because a server can only have one default gateway configured at a time.
