Thank you for your reply sir.

I think I have not clearly posted my question.

The actual scenerio goes like this. I need to host one website on two
different webservers. This both website are mirror copy of eachother. What I
want is that if one webserver goes down the nameserver should automatically
point to the other mirror copy of my website. Can this be done?

Thank you,

Tina.
