I know it's Saturday and you are all getting ready to go party :P but I would like to ask you to do this before you https://masto.host/changing-your-instances-dns-settings
It's not mandatory and nothing will happen if you don't but I think you should *wink wink*
This will hopefully be the last time I ask you to play with DNS settings.
@mastohost I'm using Google Domains and I'm unable to add two A records, is something wrong or should I just add one?
@glcls do they allow you to set a CNAME, ANAME or ALIAS as vip.masto.host ?
@mastohost Of those only CNAME is supported, but not for the root domain / @.
@glcls OK, let's keep it simple, can you please add just one A record and add this one: 22.214.171.124
@glcls well, you will be like you were up to now.
The situation you describe is the only disadvantage is really that one because you will now be using a server with much less load and that should respond a bit faster.
Still, if I one server goes down and it is some problem that takes a long time to solve, I will point both IPs to the server that will still be working.
