I am on the free plan (mostly hobby site) and am working on setting up a site with primitive failover:
- 2 hosts running same content on low-cost hosting
- one host might go down at random
- both hosts behind Cloudflare proxy under 1 name
If one of the servers goes down, will Cloudflare try the other IP registered?
I know there exists the load balancing product, but that feels overkill.
From this article: https://blog.cloudflare.com/new-tools-to-monitor-your-server-and-avoid-downtime/ it sounds like smart failover is enabled by default on paying subscriptions… However i can find no setting for the free account.
