Best Virtual Waiting Room Software

Virtual waiting room technology is used to prevent sites from crashing during periods of unexpected traffic spikes. These tools detect abnormal traffic increases and provide a waiting page where users can wait until the site is able to handle additional visitors. Companies use these tools to ensure their site is capable of maintaining availability in unexpected situations or during special events such as an online sale or breaking news story.

Some of these tools come as a feature within a content delivery network (CDN) . Those tools also help to increase site availability and speed, but provide an increased ability to control visitor and traffic management

To qualify for inclusion in the Virtual Waiting Room category, a product must:

  • Monitor sites for spikes in traffic
  • Control site availability and prioritize users
  • Provide a waiting room page to inform users of the situation
