failover.cc is a cloud service that checks your websites at short interval and, if the website becomes unhealthy, performs an IP- or DNS failover by using the Cloudflare API.
We test your website health every 10 seconds. Also the backup servers.
Import your Cloudflare DNS entries by entering the API key. Define your Server IPs. Create checks. Done.
Receive email alerts and slack messages about your website condition instantly.
Starting at $4.99/month. Test all features during your free 7 day trial. Free plan available.
You need a Cloudflare account and your website traffic running through the Cloudflare network (or use Cloudflare for DNS).
Our nodes check if your website is responding on your primary IP. As soon as your website becomes unavailable, all traffic will automatically be switched over to the configured backup IP address. This can be another server or load-balancer – also in another geolocation.
We use the Cloudflare API to change the target IP settings for your website.
Using the Cloudflare network (so Cloudflare acts like a proxy), your backup server is available in seconds in case of failover. This is no DNS failover that needs propagating the new IP address and often fails with browser or internet service provider caches for several minutes.
You can use our service for DNS failover if you want to (by using Cloudflare as a DNS provider). That way traffic runs to your site directly.
There can be multiple backup servers. All backup servers are checked frequently so there is no failover to a broken server.
You will be notified by email and slack messages of the failover and the recovery (failback). Also if there are any problems with the backup servers.
And of course you can trigger a manual switchover to other servers with the web interface.
