A faster site means better search engine rankings and more engaged users. More engaged users stay on your site longer and convert more. PeakHour automatically enhances your website in several ways to dramatically improve the load time of your site.
Gain fine control of expires headers for your website assets. Instead of having to manually configure response headers on your webserver, peakhour allows you to set expires headers regardless of your origin server. This can dramatically speed up secondary requests to your website and reduce server load.
Your website will automatically support the latest HTTP protocol even if your origin server doesn't. HTTP/2 has a number of performance enhancements including push and framing that can speed up your site.
Apart from being a requirement for HTTP/2, Google favours websites that use HTTPS in its rankings, Peakhour can provide you with a free SSL certificate from Letsencrypt and install it on your website automatically. If you already have your own certificate we can also use that.
Everytime a browser visits a website using SSL it must 'handshake' to ensure that the certificate is from a trusted source before it will download a page. Peakhour optimises this handshake saving you time. Peakhour also ensures that only secure SSL ciphers are used regardless of your origin host configuration
The second big feature of our CDN is the ability to cache dynamic pages. For websites that use a CMS like wordpress and has pages that don't change very often this can provide a massive boost to the speed of your site.
By using Peakhour as your DNS provider you get the benefits of anycast DNS
