Each cluster you create comes with a unique Global Hostname. It's the main entry-point into your application.

An example hostname looks like this application-aa555a.appfleet.net

It consists of 2 parts, the first is the name you entered during the cluster creation. It's unique on an account level.

The second part is the unique public ID of your account. It's generated automatically and can't be modified.

You can always point a custom domain name using a CNAME record to your Global Hostname. e.g. www.example.com CNAME application-aa555a.appfleet.net

Once a cluster is deployed, all regions that you selected and deployed will automatically register with our global routing system and your Global Hostname will start working.

Your Global Hostname will intelligently route all traffic from your users to the nearest region your application is deployed in. For example requests coming from California will be automatically routed to the San Francisco region and requests from Philadelphia will be routed to our servers in New York City.

In addition to performance based routing our system also takes into account uptime and availability. Meaning your Global Hostname will automatically detect outages in regions, hardware outages, failed deployments and remove the impacted infracture from it's routing decisions.
