The plugin improves the indicator of webpage loading time by means of scaling statics by using content delivery network (CDN), and contributes to a substantial increase in productivity on account of reducing the size of CSS/JS statics and HTML content.
The simplified plugin setup does not require special knowledge.
After plugin installation and activation, you only have to provide the CDN link and activate the service.
Page Speed and SEO – is there any connection?
It has already become rather obvious that site speed (and consequently, page load time) is crucial for Web Search Engines page ranking algorithms. In measuring site speed the retrieval engines are even believed to be counting to first bite precisely. To top it off, the slower the page is loading, the less pages the search engines are able to crawl through due to deficient allocated crawl budget. And this is definitely no good news for your indexation.
For the overall user experience and satisfaction page speed is of no small importance too. Prolonged load time brings unsatisfactory bounce rates, users are less likely to linger on such page. Let alone the chilling effect longer load time casts over type conversions.

Minification-what’s that supposed to mean?
Basically, ‘minification’ stands for the disposing of excessive or irrelevant data. However, the process does not disturb browser’s processing of the website. For instance, code comments, shorter identifiers for variables and function symbols, false code removal, and formatting, etc.
What Is a CDN? How Does a CDN work?
CDN is short for Content Distribution Network, which is a wide-area network of Proxy servers and their data acquisition centers. The major target is achieved by spatial service distribution to the end users thus providing uninterrupted operations and improved performance.
Do I need a Hostry Pagespeed Booster when I already have HTTP/2?
HTTP/2 is certainly a breakthrough when we consider successful reduction of one-server multiple request impact by elegantly putting to use one and the same connection for any quantity of concurrent requests. In this case, the CSS/JS concatenation remains acute. To sum up, customize, try, reconfigure, try again, adjust and go by what is more applicable to you current situation. In some cases HTTP/2 is more than enough; in other circumstances you may need aggregation and minification as well as HTTP/2 or HTTP/2 at one stretch with minification.
I process HTML compressing with deflate/gzip, why would I need Hostry Pagespeed Booster?
Hostry Pagespeed Booster makes the source HTML even smaller, thus further speeding up its compression and providing better results. Moreover, bare deflate/gzip can make your HTML markup look mediocre and non-professional. But here Hostry Pagespeed Booster comes to your aid.
