If I host my website on Digital Ocean, what happens if I expect a large traffic spike, > 10.000 simultaneous connections? Do you have load balancers available?

We do not offer load balancers. You can however set up your own load balancer cluster – we have plenty of articles on how to do that: <a href=“”></a>.
