MCNC offers a website failover service for its NCREN customers at no additional charge. The Webfail service uses a website monitoring device to determine if the target website is responding. If the target website fails to respond, the monitoring device will rewrite the DNS “A” record to a backup website. The next target website request will use the new “A” record and go to the backup website.

In addition, MCNC offers a Apache backup website for use or customers can use their own backup website.
