Well, of course, I want that like anyone else ... but I am sizing up what is practical vs. what is needed. I have serious doubts about mysql replication (just from reading) ... I guess it is a "don't knock it 'til you try it" scenario

Huh? Didn't quite get this. The DNS failover switches the hostname to the IP (it checks the site's availability every 5 minutes and switches over to the Backup if it appears the Primary is down).

BUT, in the proposed scenario, my current server is on, say:
And the new primary will be on (some real IP at a provider)
example: 200.139.149.x

IIRC, even though ISPConfig allows you to put in multiple IPs it actually doesn't have communication or support for multiple servers, right? Will I have to maintain two different ISPConfig setups of all the websites? (Drupal multisites with a bunch of sites on 1 IP using Named-Based Virtual hosting using howtoforge setups)
