HTTP/2, ESI & More Added To A2 Hosting’s Turbo Servers For Even Faster Performance


Ann Arbor, MI – August 12, 2015 - When A2 Hosting launched their Turbo Server line back in November 2014, they touted up to 20X faster page load speeds compared to competing services. Reasons why A2 Hosting’s Turbo Servers perform so well versus traditional hosts include the A2 Optimized Site Accelerator, fewer users per server and better performance than Apache.

In an effort to further enhance Turbo Servers’ performance, A2 Hosting has added compatibility for a number of cutting edge services including:

  • HTTP/2
    Based on Google’s SPDY protocol, HTTP/2 improves transfer speeds by 20-30% compared to HTTP by making network connections more efficient through multiplexing. Unlike HTTP, HTTP/2 can request multiple files at the same time and avoid bottlenecks by prioritizing requests so they do not get stuck behind slow loading requests.

  • Edge Side Includes (ESI)
    Site owners no longer have to designate an entire page as non-cacheable just because one portion cannot be cached. Instead site owners can designate portions of a page to be cached (or not cached) using ESI. This is particularly helpful for eCommerce solutions like Magento where the shopping cart is on every page and the page becomes non-cacheable once a visitor adds a product to the cart.

  • WebSocket
    A2 Hosting’s Turbo Servers makes it easy to setup a WebSocket proxy to a WebSocket beckend. WebSocket’s allow users to create two-way interactions between a browser and a website for a realtime web experience including live content and games.

Customers wanting these services can try them completely risk thanks to A2 Hosting’s Anytime Money Back Guarantee. Turbo Servers featuring these services are available for Shared Hosting, Reseller Hosting, VPS Hosting and Dedicated Servers.

A2 Hosting’s Marketing Manager Brad Litwin commented on these updates: “At A2 Hosting, it’s ‘Our Speed, Your Success’. These aren’t merely words, but rather something we strive for each day. With the launch of features like HTTP/2 and ESI, we’ve managed to make our Turbo Servers perform even better than before.”

The inclusion of these new services on Turbo comes just weeks after A2 Hosting announced they were one of the first hosts to offer PHP 7 Hosting. PHP 7 provides A2 Hosting’s customers with additional performance advantages. Tests show PHP 7 performs 100%, and even faster in some tests, than PHP 5.6
