HTTP/2 is a relatively new internet protocol that will speed up the web. Hooray! Faster Loading Websites!

When a user visits your website, a server request is made. Your web server replies a status message and a file list for the website. After analysing the list, the browser asks for the files one at a time. HTTP/1 protocol (which majority of the world still utilises) only provides a single line for data transfer, which has to has to open and close after each file has been sent. This is where HTTP/2 comes to save the day, as the line can be kept open and more data can be sent at once.

Why is HTTP/2 Important?

The Need for Speed!

Speed is not only a major contributor to a good user experience, but a major factor for a strong SEO ranking. Since Google’s shift to mobile-first indexing, a fast loading website is paramount for any business in this day and age. Let’s be honest, websites only getting bigger and assets like JavaScript, CSS3, HTML5 Canvas and images still need to be processed quickly and HTTP/2 is here to help.

How do I get HTTP/2?

Great news, your server could already be using it. You will need to contact your web hosting provider to check what your options are. Another option is to use a Content Delivery Network, also known as a CDN, that offers a full HTTP/2 solution. HTTP/2 offers a quick performance win and it even lets you secure your site, because it uses HTTPS connections by default.

OnePoint’s Cloud AWS web hosting now provides this protocol and SSL certificates by default for all websites. Contact us and talk to a OnePoint team member today about it today.

With HTTP/2 introducing full multiplexing connections; we can overcome data bottle-necking and look forward to a faster and more reliable future on the internet.
