Server Pool Manager

Adding your dedicated servers to a pool allows you to manage your traffic consumption in every location more effectively. Here are the conditions that apply to a server being added to the pool:

  • a server and a pool should be active;
  • a server can be added only to the pool in the same location;
  • a pool and a server should have the same type of traffic.

Follow these steps to order a new pool:

  • Go to the “Pool manager” page (https://my.hostzealot.com/poolmanagement.php) and press “order pool” to order the service;
  • enter required data (pic. 1):
    • plan/bandwidth volume — additional volume will be added to the summary volume of the pool servers’ traffic;
    • bandwidth type – the pool and all dedicated servers should have the same type («Premium» or «Standard»);
    • pool name;
    • location;
  • check the order and provide the payment.

Main features of the pool:

  • current available volume of traffic is comprised of traffic of each server plus additional volume selected during the order of the pool;
  • if one of the servers in a pool becomes inactive, total volume of traffic get decreased proportionally;
  • traffic consumption is calculated separately for each server in case of pool’s suspension;
  • use «Management actions» for the service to upgrade the pool by adding additional traffic volume.
