    Hey,

    Just a quick Q.

    as an example, say I had 3 webservers to host a website ( eg mjtibbs.com) and for load balancing I was using the 3 webservers to distribute the load.

    I understand that if I were to make 3 (A) records for mjtibbs.com each pointing to one of the indvidual webservers - then enabled Round Robin... then it would access each webserver utilising Round Robin.

    However, If i were to create 3 (CNAME) records (instead of the (A) records for "mjtibbs.com" - and enabled round robin.... would the round robin still be utilised, or does it only have an effect if there are mutiple (A) records?

    Many thanks

    P.S I did try to research to avoid posting but nothing concrete came up.

    Looks like you can configure RR with CNAME records..
