Can I use load balancing on a free plan

As a free plan customer, can I activate load balancing? I don’t need any of the benefits of the paid plans.

I am happy to pay at the price schedule of the load balancing service.

In the documentation of load balancing health monitors I noticed that it says

  • Minimum time in seconds is 60 (Pro), 15 (Business), and 10 (Enterprise).

Does this mean the service is only for Pro/Business/Enterprise users?

You should be able to active Load Balancing on a free account for a $5 addon, looking at https://www.cloudflare.com/en-gb/plans/free/.

If you try to do this at https://dash.cloudflare.com/?to=/:account/:zone/traffic/load-balancing, what happens?

Yeah, you’re right. I haven’t tried it yet. Evaluating a couple of geoDNS options, and this was my priority since I already have a working account here.
