How can I automatically switch my Hosting Provider when my website is down?



When my website goes down, I want my DNS records to automatically point to another hosting provider.

I know that providers like dnsmadeeasy.com offer this as a paid service, but is it possible to set this up with PRTG also?

This is possible with a standard HTTP sensor and Custom Notification PTF.SwitchProvider.

Custom Notification SwitchProvider automatically switches over to the first provider that is up, reducing the downtime of your website to minutes.
