I´d like some opinions from you guys!
I am about to launch a new ecommerce site. It´s my first one. Currently it is completely https and was thinking I´d just make the sensitive parts https and let the rest be http as I have understod the https to slow things down and I think I read somewhere that you cannot chache when going over https.
As it seems https is becoming more and more important and I am not super savvy in all the technicalities I am concerned wether to got completely https or partly as I´m thinking it´ll be hard for me to switch if I´m already live. It is of course a small site right now and even if I´m hoping it to grow I don´t think I´ll have more than a 100 items in the shop, add to that some content pages and a blog it shouldn´t be more than a couple of hundred, do I need to worry about the page load speed then?
Let me know what you think, completely https or partly?
https with 'spdy' can be faster than regular http.
How easy it will be for you to enable 'spdy' depends on your hosting set up but it is certainly worth considering.
This is what I´m reading over at Wiki
As of February 2015, Google has announced that following the recent final ratification of the HTTP/2 standard, support for SPDY would be deprecated, and that support for SPDY will be withdrawn completely in 2016.
