Hi:

Isn't there a way to map a name to several IPs?
Or use aliases?
I'm interested in the subject because I want to do the same thing.

Regards
Waldo

Dynamic DNS will not provide the response you are looking for.  Many
browsers cache DNS for 30 mins or more regardless of your TTL.  Many
ISPs cache DNS for a day or two regardless of your TTL.  My expererience
is that it takes up to 2 days before a DNS change fully propogates even
with a TTL of 5 mins.  In some pathological cases I have seen it take 6
months.
