Recommended Posts

Typically those are used in environments that have certain kinds of load balancing or content distribution across multiple servers. Basically, they are used more often in some large volume website setups.

So you use that when yuou have to have more than one server?

 

No. Its basically used by Web Sites that use a HA (High Availability) solution, these are programs that will spread the web access to very busy sites across multiple server to "balance" the load and keep the web sites up and serving pages.

 

You just type in the regular URL, for example www.TCH.com and the HA program takes over and determines which is the least used sever in its HA pool of servers and then redirects you to this servers URL. It could be www10.TCH.com or www32.TCH.com or they could use other names that they choose. They all have the same pages but teh URL is different.
