Zero downtime region migration

We are thrilled for the new Virginia location, however Render doesn’t support swapping regions… so we have dug into the least ‘down time’ methods of doing it ourselves.

The biggest complication / fear for us is the lack of control over DNS propagation delays & internal custom domain configuration by Render. We are scared that in order to swap, we have to delete our custom domain and then create it on the new instance and we have no control / visibility into this. If something goes wrong… we are in real trouble.

If we could set the same custom domain on 2 different instances, this would be a non-issue.

Is there any chance you could allow us the ability to setup 2 instances with the same custom domains?
