    Hey everyone,

    I have a small website that I run from home using IIS 7.5 and No-IP DDNS service.

    How would I go about setting up another computer at a remote site (in friends house most likely) in case the main website would go down? Would it be possible with DDNS?

    The simplest method would be to change DDNS manually as soon as your IP is no longer reachable.
    Maybe you can have a script running on your friends PC that pings your domain regularly and - if your domain is not reachable - starts a DDNS program which then points to your friends IP.
