If you’re looking to implement an HTTP to HTTPS (SSL) redirect for your web application, you can now enable a feature directly on the load balancer instead of configuring it on your server. This significantly improves redirect performance and reduces the load on your servers. To implement this change, you must be on the main […]
Total Uptime’s Cloud Load Balancer and Web Application Firewall support a feature to block entire countries from reaching your website or application on a per-port basis. This is a powerful tool to stop unwanted traffic from getting anywhere near your servers or devices. When enabled, traffic that reaches our network will have the origin IP […]
PCI requires that TLSv1.0 be disabled. If you’re using the SSL protocol on our load balancer to take advantage of SSL Offload and/or SSL Acceleration, you can easily disable TLS 1.0. You don’t necessarily need to disable this on your server, since communication between the load balancer and your devices is a trusted connection, but […]
The Total Uptime Cloud Platform supports a variety of different protocols for use with the Cloud Load Balancer, Web Application Firewall and other networking solutions. These protocols were created to support additional features and functionality, usually at Layer 7, way beyond the standard TCP and UDP protocols also offered. Before you add a port/protocol combination, […]
When you configure an Alert List to receive UP or DOWN notifications for your servers, our developers believed that more is better. So true to form, if a server goes down, you’ll receive an alert for every port from each of the 7 regions around the world that we currently monitor from. For many customers, […]
Yes, we absolutely do, and always have. Before we supported SNI, we recommended that clients with multiple domains on a single IP address use a SAN (Subject Alternative Name) extension certificate. To use one of these, simply attach it as a standard SSL certificate (that is, do not check the SNI box when attaching it). […]
If you just use one of our built-in monitors, like the Default HTTP, it will simply attempt to load the web page with the IP address of the attached device and look for an HTTP 200 response code. Often, this is a perfectly quick and accurate monitor, but this doesn’t always work. For example, I […]
Yes, you sure can. We’re seeing this more and more. IPv4 addresses are near exhaustion and they are becoming scarce. Some ISPs and hosting companies are now charging handsomely for them, others are simply not giving them out anymore. Well, you need not fear at Total Uptime because we make it easy. You can place […]
Do you have an API (Application Programming Interface) so I can script or automate changes vs. having to use your GUI?
Yes, we sure do. We have a REST-style API specifically for this purpose. Our API documentation is not available here online yet (we’re working on that), but if you create a support case or email your technical account manager, we’ll send you a copy of the documentation right away.
