Round Robin

In this tutorial, we will learn how to configure Round Robin records within the DNS Made Easy interface to distribute your traffic evenly across multiple servers.

Load balancing / Round Robin configuration allows you to distribute your server load evenly among multiple servers. You would create multiple A records with the same name but with different associated IP’s.

For example, assume two different A records, example.com pointed to 1.2.3.4 and example.com pointed to 1.2.3.5. We would then have a www.example.com CNAME record that aliases to the root records of the domain. Load would be split evenly as 50% of the time, the queries would be sent to the server at 1.2.3.4 and 50% of the time queries would be sent to the server at 1.2.3.5.

Step 5. We will create an A record for the root record of the domain example.com with an IP address of 1.2.3.4 and a TTL of 1800 seconds. We will then create a second A record for the root record of example.com with an IP address of 1.2.3.5 and a TTL of 1800 seconds. 4
