Use HTTP/2 connections for App Service apps#

Use HTTP/2 instead of HTTP/1.x to improve protocol efficiency.


Azure App Service has native support for HTTP/2, but by default it is disabled. HTTP/2 offers a number of improvements over HTTP/1.1, including:

  • Connections are fully multiplexed, instead of ordered and blocking.
  • Connections are reused, reducing connection establishment overhead.
  • Headers are compressed to reduce overhead.


Consider using HTTP/2 for Azure Services apps to improve protocol efficiency.
