What is Load Balancing?
Load balancing is about sharing traffic across servers. Other web hosts may say they use load balancing – and indeed they do – but not the kind we’ve developed. Their load balancing mitigates failover: if a server goes down, your site will be moved to another, so it stays online.
It’s a kind of disaster recovery. That’s expected: we offer that kind of server redundancy as well, even though we use some of the best hardware in the industry – thanks to our long-term partners at Dell – and a robust 10 Gb network.
But Hosting Unlimited load balancing is of a different calibre.
Our load balancing makes use of monitors that will respond to traffic load and balance it across multiple servers when needed. Many other providers don’t offer this. The consequence for you is this: with Hosting Unlimited, your site stays online, and remains fast, whatever load the servers are under.
