Distribute the traffic to your website across multiple servers, serve content quickly from the built-in cache and let servers automatically be taken out of circulation when problems arise. Caching load balancer allows you to scale your platform horizontally, increase speed and warrant continuity. Comes with SSL and IPv6 connectivity by default.
When a server in your cluster is no longer reachable, the health checks ensure that this server will no longer receive traffic. As long as there is a server online, your visitors will only experience minimal disruptions for a brief moment, if any at all.
Health checks monitor the status of your servers through a fixed interval. Should a server go down, then the load balancer will only send traffic to servers that are actually online.
For every domain name that is attached to the caching load balancer, a free Let's Encrypt certificate is automatically generated for your domain. This means that it's no longer necessary to install your own paid certificate on the server itself.
The caching functionality ensures that static content on your website is served directly from our caching servers.
Incoming traffic can be distributed using any of the three available algorithms: round robin, random and sticky.
HTTP/2 is the next generation of the HTTP protocol and enables the use of multiplexing, server push and header compression.
