The new HTTP/2 protocol promises a faster and smarter data transmission via the Internet, allowing websites to load faster. But what exactly is HTTP/2? What are its benefits? And how can you enable it for free with Combell?
HTTP/2 is a transfer protocol, just like its predecessor, HTTP/1.1, which had already become a standard in 1999. But since then, the web has become much bigger, pages have become much more complex and multimedia content predominates. The old protocol was unable to efficiently process this huge amount of data, which is why it was decided to create HTTP/2, based on SPDY (pronounced “Speedy”), which was developed by Google.
When you connect to a server, your browser initiates an HTTP session with the server. The type of session depends on the features that the browser and the server support. If they both support HTTP/2, the server will use the HTTP/2 protocol to encapsulate and optimise traffic before sending it to you via the network. If one of them does not support HTTP/2, the browser or the server will fall back on HTTP/1.1.
HTTP/2 is able to send multiple files at once via multiplexing over one single connection, which helps websites load faster.
Combell switches to HTTP/2. This protocol is more secure, faster and more efficient, which consequently means it is mobile friendly. Activate it NOW for your website!
Combell has recently updated all its servers, which now support HTTP/2. This means that you too can enable HTTP/2 for your website. When a user visits your website using a modern browser that supports HTTP/2 (as most of them do), your website will automatically be transmitted to the user via the HTTP/2 protocol, which means it will load faster and more securely.
All you need to do is enable HTTP/2 for your website. Proceed as follows: go to your MyCombell control panel. The Site Settings now include a new tab called HTTP/2. Here, you can enable HTTP/2 for your website.

You must, however, have a valid and active SSL certificate. For further information on this subject, please read Free Let’s Encrypt SSL-certificate for Combell clients and Should you go for a free Let’s Encrypt certificate or a premium SSL certificate?
The HTTP/2 and SPDY Indicator extension for Firefox and Chrome will help you determine if a website supports HTTP/2. Once installed, it will show a lightning icon in your address bar. If a website is HTTP/2 enabled, the icon will turn blue. If it turns red, it means the page is SPDY enabled. And a grey icon will display if both SPDY and HTTP/2 are not supported. You can also test your website online at Keycdn.com
Do not wait any longer and enjoy the benefits of HTTP/2 by enabling this protocol now via your control panel.
You will find additional information about HTTP/2 on various websites, including HPBN, Github and Kinsta.
