Load Balancing DNS Scaling Clustering


How can i get this:

Using one domain with no subdomains drive visitors from México and Argentina to one droplet in San francisco, if visitor comes from Spain or France must be drived to droplet in Frankfurt.

In other words, i want to drive traffic to the nearest droplet, or to the fastest droplet response.

Thank you.

    GeoDNS is the best option. Nginx as traffic director uses subdomain.
