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.

How secure is your website?

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.

New format for animations: aWebP
Animated GIFs are now delivered as animated WebPs. The converted files are up to 90% smaller than the original file.

Automatic domain redirect with SSL

It is now possible to configure redirects for the main domain. Our automatic ‘Let’s Encrypt Service’ issues all redirects directly via SSL; an additional certificate is not necessary.

Owner-Switch via UI
You can now change the owner for your wao.io site in the ‘Team’ section. There is one owner per site who is responsible for payments and can delete the site.
