We know that having a reliable FTP connection for your Web site is
important. This is what the "Failsafe hostname" is for. When you
register new domain names or switch over your existing domain names
to us, you can always get FTP access to the Web server before
your new domain name is globally accessible or before the DNS
is switched over. This means you can always have
your Web site uploaded and ready before people get access to your Web site.
The "Failsafe hostname" provided by Wyith Limited d/b/a DomainAvenue.com
is different from ordinary access by IP redundancy provided by most providers.
With an IP address, you will be unable to locate your server in
case a major physical path between you and the server is down. However,
with this "Failsafe hostname", you can always get access to your
Web pages even if one route to your server is down because the
"Failsafe hostname" allows you to access your Web site via a
"physically" different path, thus ensuring much higher reliablity.
