Hi @delainetechnolo

By default the Health Check is connecting to the droplets via HTTP on port 80 and is expecting a response.

If your droplets do not respond on that port, then change the health check to something different.

DigitalOcean has a mission to provide the simplest cloud infrastructure for developers. With that in mind, the Load Balancer aims to balance both simplicity and enough performance and features so that the majority of applications can make use of the product. In this article, we'll focus on how to create free SSL certificates using Let's Encrypt to secure connections to the Load Balancer.
