Hi all,
I was wondering one thing. I have my server at home now, and it's primary function is hosting my web site. I can't set things up completely until next summer because of agreements I have with people, but I'd like to know what I need to do beforehand so that I'm not running around like a wild banshee. I need to figure out how to set my server up to sync up with another (web hosts, friend's), in such a way that 50 percent of web requests will hit my IIS server, and 50 percent will hit the other server. But I want it to be at random which one it goes to to prevent outage from loss of power, but more importantly, bandwidth control. How would I go about doing this? My friend who is a web host from England says it's possible. Thanks.
