What is HTTP/2?
At DTES Web & Dirctory Services we are addicted to optimizing the load times of the websites hosted on our platform and always work towards being at the forefront of new technologies. We made sure the all our services runs on HTTP/2. The protocol’s ability to send and receive more data per client-server communication cycle is not an optimization hack but a real, realizable and practical HTTP/2 advantage in terms of performance.
HTTP/2 is designed in context of present-day web usage trends. Capabilities such as multiplexing and header compression work well to reduce latency in accessing internet services across mobile data networks offering limited bandwidth per user. HTTP/2 optimizes web experience for mobile users with high performance and security previously only attributed to desktop internet usage. HTTP/2 advantages for mobile users promises immediate positive impact in the way online businesses target customers in the cyber world.
Background Techie Talk about HTTP/2
HTTP/2 is a replacement for how HTTP is expressed “on the wire.” It is not a ground-up rewrite of the protocol; HTTP methods, status codes and semantics are the same, and it should be possible to use the same APIs as HTTP/1.x (possibly with some small additions) to represent the protocol.
The focus of the protocol is on performance; specifically, end-user perceived latency, network and server resource usage. One major goal is to allow the use of a single connection from browsers to a Web site.
The Hyper Text Transfer Protocol (HTTP), the simple, constrained and ultimately boring application layer protocol forms the foundation of the World Wide Web. In essence, HTTP enables the retrieval of network connected resources available across the cyber world and has evolved through the decades to deliver fast, secure and rich medium for digital communication.
