  • Support for multiple traffic types (TCP, HTTP, HTTPS)
  • Choice of load balancing algorithms (leastconn, roundrobin, source)
  • Choice of health check mechanism (httpchk, mysqlcheck, ping)
  • Static front-end IP address

The same technology we use
The load balancer technology available is identical to the type we use on our own websites and databases, allowing us to offer you a service that we know works incredibly well.

Load balancer control panel
Easily configure what your load balancer primary role is (e.g. serve websites, databases, apps etc.), configure DNS, allocate servers to the load balancer, choose the method by which traffic is distributed amongst your network and much more.
