Failover records are very similar to regular DNS records, in that they point a domain to an IP address or hostname… but you can also specify a backup IP or hostname.

How to Setup DNS Failover

Learn how to create a Failover record and integrate health checks for each endpoint in your record. 

Failover + Round Robin

Regional Failover

Regional failover allows you to specify a backup system in the same or a neighboring region that will handle traffic in the event that the primary system fails. 

Failover + Templates

Templates allow you to reuse records and configurations, like failover, across multiple domains.
