HTTP/2 at 3DN: Really Fast

We work hard at 3DN. So much so that we often don’t even allow ourselves the time to translate posts to English. Dutch is our primary language and for now also our primary market. While you may not always be able to read a post in your preferred language, we try to make sure that anything you can read goes FAST. We believe we’re good at it. However, nothing beats human feedback. We love to hear from you.

The 3DN site is a technical site. Some would call this a bit dry and boring. Sometimes we spend some time in making a fun poll like this one. The idea was to make a poll that would show the meaning through images instead of focussing on the language at first.

Google unfortunately does not yet measure our site’s real speed. Google measures only the HTTP/1.1 speed. HTTP/2 as in use at 3DN may sometimes speed up the browing experience by a factor of two or even three.

We also use a CDN so that no matter where you are in the world, our site will still be fast. No compromise! We use WordPress TotalCache, precompiled PHP code, query optimizer, New Relic and a lot more technologies.

All that technology does not however tell us how YOU experience our site. You feel our site is as slow as a turtle? Does it hobble-on like a Beagle? Or do you feel it sprints fast like a cheeta?
