    High I am using cPanel hosting with a new provider. When I signed up with my new provider I gave them the domain name (domain1) I wanted to use. I want to add another domain that will behave like domain1. I want it to be separate but be mirrored. For example, if domain1 becomes unavailable I still want to be able to make WordPress changes from domain2

    - - - Updated - - -

    I already added the nameservers for domain2.

    Re: Newbie domain question

    Hello :)

    cPanel currently supports clustering for DNS purposes only. There is support to host your databases on a remote MySQL server, however beyond that, there are no native options that allow for mirroring of your websites or automatic replacement of a network/IP address if the event another fails. I recommend searching our forums for "mirroring" and "high availability" for custom solutions that other users may have implemented. There are lots of discussions about the best ways to do this. EX:

    Load Balancing
    Load Balancing Servers
    cPanel Load Balanced Servers

    Also, feel free to add your input to the following active feature requests:

    Active Redundancy or High Availability
    Built-in load balancing, replication, high availability | cPanel Feature Requests

    Thank you.
