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.
All backend Droplets must be in the same region as the load balancer.
To add Droplets:
To remove Droplets:
Existing certificates, both Let’s Encrypt and custom, appear in the Certificate dropdown list when creating your load balancer and in the Forwarding Rules section of the Settings tab after creation. You can assign any existing certificates in the HTTPS and HTTP/2 forwarding rules.
To delete an existing certificate:
You cannot delete certificates that are still in use. You can delete the forwarding rule or edit it so that it no longer uses the certificate, then return to the Certificates tab and delete it.
The Droplets associated with your load balancer stop receiving distributed traffic, but the Droplets themselves are not destroyed.
