Users will love your faster loading website. In your Analytics dashboard you can find out how much less data users need to load while surfing your website.
Compress your images without compromises
Our automatic image optimization can save you a great deal of work: Read our blog post to find out why it offers the perfect compromise between effort, quality and compression.
New in Analytics: HTTP Errors
Complete error control for a healthy website: Your Analytics dashboard will display all HTTP errors caused by the origin server. The descriptive graph differentiates between errors for pages meaning delivered HTML sites and assets meaning resources such as script, css and image files.
A separate area displays all errors received by users, e.g. when your origin server was not available. Every error will be logged using an error code. Error codes can be found in our help center.
This year was HTTP/2’s third birthday. Support of h2 in browsers and Web servers is pretty good. Nowadays, with a TLS certificate at hand using h2 is not much more effort than flipping a switch. All major Web servers like Nginx, Apache httpd or IIS have built-in support. Auxiliary software like HAProxy or Varnish/Hitch do so, too.
That’s great! We get multiplexing, stream priorities, HPACK and all the other h2 awesomeness we see in slide decks – whatever they do…
A tale of a waterfall chart and some insights in how HTTP/2 really works.
Improve your google speed index by activating the new advanced option: “no image delaying above the fold”. Important images like your logo will be shown undelayed to your user, which has a positive impact on your WPT score. Continue reading “Feature Update 12/18”
Don’t just speed up your website – make it more secure as well. Check the security of your website using our analyzer tool to find out which safety measures wao.io can offer you.
More security through HSTS wao.io offers to activate HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) for your site. HSTS compels the use of HTTPS-connections and serves as protection of attacks such as protocol-downgrade, session-hijacking and man-in-the-middle-attacks.
If your website already uses HTTPS instead of HTTP, the use of HSTS will not just increase your security but also your performance.
Even better Lazy Loading Our lazy loading functionality for images is now even better: hidden images in sliders or hover boxes of product tiles will now be loaded when they come close to the visible area.
In addition, we optimized lazy loading for HTML streaming. Try combining HTML streaming and lazy loading and profit from significantly reduced TTFB.
In August 2018 the final version of TLS 1.3 was published. It is the first major update to the protocol in over eight years. It involves massive improvements in both performance and security over its predecessor TLS 1.2.
