Round robin DNS

Posted November 11, 2013 6.1k views
Hey guys, I have two droplets on which I'll like to balance requests with the round robin algorithm. Problem is, I'm really too sure how to do this. If I go under the DNS section, then hit the "Add domain" button, I must enter the domain and choose 1 ip/droplet. That done, I'm trying to modify the A entries to have one for the first droplet and another one for the second droplet. Problem is, this doesn't seem to work, and all the requests are forwarded to the droplet I selected when creating the domain. I guess I'm missing something obvious, and I'd like your inputs on that. Thank you!

Round robin DNS do supported. Simply create two A/CNAME records of the same name.
