If you want to make your website available under the corresponding www-sub-domain you need to create/update the www-sub-domain too.
Multiple IP addresses
You have the possibility to enter multiple IP addresses for a domain.
However, this is not a backup function in case one of the IP addresses is not reachable.
Our system is working according to the "Round Robin algorithm" when using multiple IP addresses.
"Round Robin" is a simple technique for load balancing for network services based on the DNS.
If you have entered multiple IP addresses, the DNS server basically returns back all the registered IP addresses but in alternating order.
The first request is for example answered with [192.168.20.10, 192.168.20.11, 192.168.20.12] and the second with [192.168.20.11, 192.168.20.12, 192.168.20.10] etc.
