Why & How Moving To Http/2 Will Impact Your Online Business

17 December 2018 - 08:14 AM

The HTTP/1.x protocol served faithfully for almost 20 years. It was replaced by HTTP/2, based on the SPDY protocol, developed in conjunction with Google. HTTP/2 is a major revision of the HTTP protocol that:

 

- makes page loading and rendering faster;

- speeds up the delivery via HTTPS;

- makes utilization of available network capacity more efficient.

 

How HTTP/2 increases website load speed

 

Multiplexing allows multiple requests and response messages between the client and server to be in flight at the same time over a single https connection, instead of multiple connections, which improves page load times.

 

Header compression reduces the overhead bytes downloaded by the client, helping get the content to the viewer sooner. This is especially useful for mobile clients that are already constrained on bandwidth.

 

Stream priority, allows for quicker page rendering by enabling the client to control the order in which web assets are delivered, thereby optimizing user experience.

 

How HTTP/2 improves the performance of SSL

 

HTTP/2 was designed only for HTTPS (does not work with HTTP)

It works optimally with it, speeding up the work of the protocol. The reasons for choosing TLS-only mode are to take care of the user’s privacy, and early research has shown a high level of success with new protocols when using TLS.

 

Read why you need to go to https and how to do it correctly, read the article “A complete guide on how to migrate from HTTP to HTTPS the right way without traffic loss”.

 

How HTTP/2 makes network resources utilization more efficient

 

HTTP/2 enables a more efficient use of network resources and a reduced perception of latency by introducing header field compression and allowing multiple concurrent exchanges on the same connection. It also allows prioritization of requests, letting more important requests complete more quickly, further improving performance.

Php 5.6 And 7.0 Support Will Halt On December 31, 2018

19 October 2018 - 06:48 AM

Get ready, guys! And update your PHP to survive the next year.

 

PHP versions affect many things: from security to speed, down to the basic functionality of our web pages. The reason why you can’t continue using the same PHP version forever is similar to the reason why you can’t drive one car forever. Time “eats” it and it’s getting old.

 

Reasons why you should upgrade PHP versions

1. Security

2. Performance

3. Support

4. New opportunities for developers

 

PHP 7 comes with many improvements over its predecessors that will benefit your ecommerce site. Despite this, it is becoming an industry requirement for the launch of a safe and fast online store, so it is important to make the switch sooner than later.

 

Our DevOps Alex is explaining all benefits of supported PHP in his Post.


How And Why Comply With Pci Dss

How PCI DSS can help your business:
 

- Identify risks in the way you store or transmit customer data

- Set a clear path of action to address any data security risks

- Make sure your service providers do not put your data security at risk

- Show your customers that you take data security seriously

 
 
How PCI DSS can help you avoid problems:

 

- Reduce the risk of liabilities such as the cost of any fraud on compromised card accounts

- If your security is breached, legal and investigation costs can be substantial

- Protect your reputation and build trust with your customers

What Web Hosting Can Do For Ecommerce Business Besides Storing Files?

14 September 2018 - 07:01 AM

We are proud to be more than a storage space for our clients. From the very beginning, we wanted to become their partners and provide the hosting solutions moving the ecommerce business of our customers forward. In this article, we want to share some cases when Amazon Cloud Hosting service went further than clients expected and contributed to the business success.

 

DDoS protection

“You shall not pass!”

 

A Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack is an attempt to make an online service unavailable by overwhelming it with traffic from multiple sources. They target a wide variety of important resources, from banks to news websites, and present a major challenge in making sure people can publish and access important information.

We’ve learned to detect the harmful traffic quickly and prevent the attack. Our protocols are not perfect, but they already proved to be effective. We are constantly improving the protection service by combining machine automation and human investigation.

Bad code detection

“I also like to live dangerously!”

 

Applications are not ideal, as well as the code. The errors may occur when you don’t expect them to, even in the most common and routine situations. They can be caused by the quality of the core code or due to the integration or upgrade. The versions of the collaborating applications might not match and result in the overall system failure. But the most common reason for the errors inside the application code is the human factor. It often happens when the website owners change the development team or perform upgrade by themselves.

Though we encourage our customers to learn more about programming and software configurations, we always warn them that some manipulations have to be left for the professionals as they can affect their ecommerce business stability and security.

Due to our Service policy, we manage only the server, we don’t manage the applications installed by the customer. Nevertheless, it’s our concern to have the customer’s business online and successfully growing with no interruption. That’s why we decided to monitor the application performance regularly and inform the owners about anything we find that can slow down the website or cause critical errors. On the top of that, we are the most loyal CS-Cart fans and we’ve studied it throughout the years perfectly. We know the weak points that need precise monitoring.

Recovery after sabotage

“Consider that a divorce!”

 

Another human factor that can influence the online business in a negative way is the former staff. After parting ways with developers the employer does not bother to withdraw their access or at least change the password. Some fired employees often get insulted and try to take revenge.

Hosting expenses reduction

“Show me the money!”

 

To optimize hosting expenses, sometimes knowing the basic specification is not enough. More often you have to know how server applications and services work together. It can happen that your slow website does not need some extra resources which will cost you another $100 a month. Sometimes you can increase the performance and cut expenses at the same time by fine-tuning the services.

Load speed increase

”Ride or die, remember?”

 

Taking on new clients we conduct the complex audit of the entire infrastructure to increase the website load speed to the maximum possible. Unlike other hosting services, we look for the opportunities where no one does – in the client’s software. We don’t manage it, but we can point out the weak spots which can be improved. We do it for two reasons – we want our clients to live forever and grow faster, and we know the software and know where those points of growth hide. We can do it, so why not!
