Best Way to Deal With Site Down
My Linode is being brought down on Friday morning (AU time) and I will probably lose some email.
I would like to put a temporary box in place to:
1. catch and store email until the main box is back up; and
2. redirect http requests (not nearly as urgent)
I would like to do this with the least amount of cost. I can use Linode or will try get feet wet with Amazon.
Either way - cost is important and the box should only be up for, at most, 4 hours.
Two suggestions: 1) You can upgrade to KVM to avoid the Xen-only downtime. 2) Mail will queue at sending servers - so, I wouldn't worry about this so much?
