We have significantly upgraded the HTTP capabilities of our hosting. We have added HTTP/2 support to the Framer subdomains (e.g. framer.website), and all sites will now always automatically be redirected to HTTPS. In addition, we’ve upgraded our CDN to support HTTP/3 in order to improve performance. This should make websites load up to 30% faster in modern browsers.

This release brings two improvements that can make your site up to 2x as fast.
When you publish your site, we pre-render a static HTML version on the server, so it loads faster and Google can analyze it for SEO (using React and SSR). We have optimized this process to use multiple CPUs on our server at the same time. Now, even sites with hundreds of pages can finish in seconds.
We serve your site from a global cache location close to your visitors to make sure your site loads fast. In addition, we use an advanced HTML and text compression algorithm called Brotli. Compressed content is now cached, so we can send it directly to your visitors instead of compressing each request individually. In our tests this often improves loading speed by up to 2x, which will have a very positive impact on your Lighthouse scores like LCP. This will be especially noticeable on larger sites, so you can scale your site without worry.
