HTTP/2

What is HTTP/2?

EdgeOne supports clients to initiate requests using the HTTP/2 protocol. HTTP/2 (i.e., HTTP 2.0, the second version of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol) is the second major version of the HTTP protocol, which can effectively reduce network latency and improve site page loading speed.
Note:
1. If the client request does not use HTTP/2, EdgeOne is compatible with HTTP 1.x protocol access.
2. For configuring access requests, please refer to this document. If you need to configure HTTP/2 to follow the origin, please refer to HTTP/2 origin-pull.
3. Starting from November 23, 2023, for security reasons (for details, see Protection against DDoS attacks targeting HTTP/2 protocol vulnerabilities), the HTTP/2 will be disabled by default for incremental sites, and users may enable it as needed.

Prerequisites

The access domain name of the current site has been configured with an SSL certificate. For how to configure an SSL certificate, please refer to: Certificate Configuration.
