    I am doing ome research on Load Balancing with cpanel and I am not sure if this is possible but I would like to throw it out there and see what kind of response I get.

    I currently have two boxes. I would like to expand two boxes into three boxes and put each box in a different datacenter. Softlayer is planning on having a load balance solution in place that will allow me to load balance all three boxes even though they are in different datacenters since SL has their own private network.

    My question is how would cpanel work with this setup (or would it work with this setup)? Would I need to do a custom install for each domain that we move over to this new load balanced cluster?

    cPanel/WHM does not natively support load balancing. However, many customers implement this functionality themselves by building custom scripts to synchronize the contents of all load balanced servers.

    Will we be needing 2 separate Cpanel licenses for 2 servers with 2 different fixed IP addresses load balanced via a hardware load balancer (every website has the same load balancing IP which distributes the work-load onto 2 servers).
