Does Brainstorm Support the HTTP/2 protocol?

Yes! HTTP/2 is available on brainstorm. In order for your site(s) to use the HTTP/2 protocol, though, we’ll have to verify that your server’s operating system and software are fully up-to-date, and you’ll need to make sure there’s an installed and active SSL certificate on the site. (You can use our Simple SSL, or provide your own SSL certificate, just as long as the site’s connecting securely.)

Once those requirements are met, your site will use the newer HTTP/2 protocol automatically—no switches to flip or settings to configure!

Since browsers require a secure connection to use HTTP/2, it’s generally a good idea to enable “Force HTTPS.” You’ll find that option in the Advanced tab of a site’s brainstorm Dashboard as long as there’s an active SSL certificate installed.

If you’re wondering what HTTP/2 is all about: it’s the next iteration of HTTP, the protocol used for all Internet connections. HTTP/2 is generally superior to HTTP 1.1. in a number of ways, and depending on your site and its configuration, HTTP/2 may provide speed boost. If you have other questions about the specifics of HTTP/2, be sure to check out the official FAQ.

All brainstorm sites with an active SSL certificate will soon run HTTP/2 automatically. You don’t need to do anything to enable it. But the operating system and software upgrades required to run HTTP/2 haven’t quite been rolled out to all brainstorm servers just yet, because we run upgrades in small batches so that we can monitor changes carefully and address any issues as they come up.

UPDATE: As of June 26, 2017, 99% of brainstorm instances are HTTP/2 enabled, with that number expected to rise to 100% in early July.

If your site is fairly new, odds are good that you’re already fully up-to-date and ready to use HTTP/2, since we spin up new servers with the most current versions. However, if the server’s a little older, we may not have gotten to the upgrade just yet.

Again, all servers on brainstorm will be HTTP/2-enabled automatically in the very near future. But if you’d like to find out whether your server’s running HTTP/2, or upgrade as soon as possible, feel free to reach out to our support team.

NOTE: The operating system upgrade required to run HTTP/2 will cause site downtime of anywhere from 5 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the server. There’s no way to stop the upgrade once it’s started, so if you’re not prepared for potential site downtime, it’s best to hold off on the upgrade.
