Load Balancer Details

DigitalOcean Load Balancers are a fully-managed, highly available network load balancing service. Load balancers distribute traffic to groups of Droplets, which decouples the overall health of a backend service from the health of a single server to ensure that your services stay online.

Using a load balancer as a gateway gives you the flexibility to change your backend infrastructure without affecting the availability of your services, enabling seamless scaling, rolling deployments, large architecture redesigns, and more.
Load balancers cost $12.00 per month for each node they contain.
Load balancers and Let’s Encrypt certificates are available in every region.
