Hey Guys,

So I'm looking for a new web host to handle a large Magento website, and I'd like to run two dedicated servers to load balance.

Is it a problem to load balance between two Elite's for performance boosting?

Or would it be better to use one server as a CDN and Database and the other for the actual site?

Hello Tim,

I spoke with the Advanced Hosting department and they suggested the CDN with database and site files on separate servers as the better of the two. They did say that the amount of data and overall size of the site can play into the decision, however.

I hope this answers your question. If you have any more questions or information specific to the issue please leave a comment below so we can further assist you. If you are looking for an affordable dedicated server option, click here to learn more about what you with any of our plans.
