To host website at multiple ISPs
I have following question...
For example if I host a website at two ISPs... lets say ISP_1 and ISP_2.. and I have 4 name sarvers:
This makes some sort of protection from possible DNS issues.
But what I have to do if I need to make a protection from possible Apache/MySQL issues? I'd like to make so that if Apache at ISP_1 goes down then all traffic from ISP_1 being redirected to ISP_2 and invertedly..
Thank you for your help and attention.

Get your DNS hosted somewhere with a proper N+1 name server setup. A good ISP should have at least two off network, different physical location, name servers to safe guard against "DNS issues".
You can use DNS in a crude way to build in some kind of load balancing. Otherwise google FreeBSD Load Balancer. There are some very good configuration walkthroughs out there on how to build a stable load balancer.
Hope that helps.
