You can survive loosing 2 servers out of 5 by using disperse volumes
with 3+2 configuration. But in your case, web hosting, with lots of
small files and random read/write it is not recommended.
Maybe you can test the workload and give it a try. Other than disperse
volumes I don't know a solution that will handle failure of 2 out of 5
