Just wanted to see if and when Managed Wordpress hosting will support HTTP/2?
Looking at the HTTP headers, my site seems to be served from ApacheTrafficServer which DOES support http2 as of v6 I believe, but its being loaded via 1.1
Solved! Go to Solution.
Just to update all folks here, CDN is now available on all Managed WordPress plans. We turn it on automatically for new sites. Existing sites can turn it on in their hosting setting (myh.godaddy.com).
Turning on CDN will also turn on HTTP/2 support for all assets except the document. HTTP/2 support is currently in the works along with some other improvements for better performance overall.
Hi @aod. Welcome to GoDaddy Community!
That's a good question. I'm not sure if that's something that's in the works or not. I'll make sure to pass on the suggestion, though. It would be interesting to hear from other Community members on this as well to see if this is a common interest/concern.
Hi Jesse - just wanted to support this improvement. I came here looking to ask the same question regarding http/2 - is there any way to receive notification on when the service will be available?
Hi, @Wolfcoach. Thanks for being part of GoDaddy Community!
There isn't any kind of update feed that you would be able to subscribe to. Ideally, I'll be able to update this thread when the update occurs, though.
I am looking for http/2 support as well in shared hosting (I did not find a separate thread). That and the next step up for php (since 5.6 is now officially not supported that Godaddy just updated to).
I'm looking for this too - recently updated several sites with SSL certs and https:// protocol. I'd like the benefits of http/2 as well! Hopefully it will be automatic if the site is https? Or will we be notified somehow that it's available and we can opt in? IMO it should just be automatic if https:// is already in place.
Hey @aod. Just wanted to circle back and let you know that this is definitely something we're looking to implement. One of our developers confirmed this for me. This will probably happen within the first part of next year.
What is the status of HTTP/2 for Godaddy Web Hosting? This is absolutely necessary now. Our hosting plan expires before the end of this year, not going to renew it and will move to a new host who does support HTTP/2 if Godaddy doesn't.
Yes, our new Pro Managed WordPress product (https://www.godaddy.com/hosting/pro-wordpress-hosting) includes HTTP/2 support.
It also includes PHP 7.1, MySQL 5.7, free SSL, runs in a containerized environment, includes a free GravityForms license, has a dedicated WordPress support team and more.
Pro looks excellent. Already a big fan of the current product. Question would be; will the resellers be able to sell this product as well?
Hi @moocows I'm unsure, I recommend asking in that forum. I only work on our Managed WordPress platform.
Hello @Gabe can you ask your colleagues on the other side if the http/2 Support will be available in the future on business hosting and shared hosting? Thank you so much.
