    I've configured an web, email, mysql, dns cluster on debian 6.
    The servers I used is on to different computer centers.
    And my question is, with a domain like example.com -> server1
    But if server1 doesent respond, can you get redirected to server2 ?
    same goes for email, webmail ?

    Thx :)
    I've read alot about heartbeat, and keapalived.
    As far as I can see, it works under a LAN.

    GW(headrtbeat) --> switch --> WEB1 and WEB2

    It should work.
    But my two servers is on different datacenters. With sepperated WAN addresses.

    You should consider one of the oter options like a loadbalancer which redirects the incoming http requests to the working servers only or you switch the dns records and use a very short ttl. The dns switching is the easiest method but may cause a short downtime depending on the caching time of the dns servers.
