H2O HTTP/2 server 1.7.0 released; added a new benchmark

Today, I am happy to announce the release of H2O HTTP/2 server, version 1.7.0.

Major additions in this update are:
  • asynchronous HTTP client for mruby handler
  • Support for CGI and Basic Authentication
  • Support for wild-card hostnames

You can find more detailed description of the additions in my previous blogpost: H2O version 1.7.0-beta1 released with enhanced mruby scripting, CGI, and much more. And along with the new features, we have also enabled the use of Neverbleed by default, to reduce the risk of private key disclosure in case of a vulnerability.

We have also updated the numbers of the request-per-seconds benchmark.

I have seen many people hesitating to move to HTTPS or HTTP/2 in fear of performance issues. But what is apparent from this benchmark is that the performance of HTTP/2 with TLS is actually on par with HTTP/1 without TLS (in case of nginx) or much faster (in case of H2O).

Details of the benchmark (along with other benchmarks) can be found at


  1. Hello my name is Brian.
    I was wondering if you could help me.
    I have been reading up on H20 and I think it may be a good fit for our website since we want to deploy Http2 in the next 30days.
    Would you be willing to answer any questions from my programmers to help up move from Nginx to your platform?
    Potentially H2o could be on thousands of websites if this goes well.

    1. Thank you for considering using H2O.

      I would appreciate it if you could ask questions on, so that others can share the conversation as well as chiming in to share their expertise.
