Apache 2.4 support HTTP/2.0, so request for this to DreamHost


Hi all DreamHost users HTTP/2.0 is only available for nginx server on DreamHost at this time. If DreamHost server run on Apache 2.4, then HTTP/2.0 is also available on Apache for all DreamHost Users. So please request to DreamHost for Apache 2.4.



Thanks for the suggestion. Upgrade Apache webserver to 2.4+ is already in the list of things to do. I don’t have an estimate for a delivery date though.


Is Apache 2.4 any closer to being rolled out on shared hosting?


Hello ianthomas_uk

Thank you for contacting us!

Our Admins are always working on upgrading our servers, however we do not have an ETA on when we will go live with Apache 2.4 on shared hosting. As of April 2018, DreamHost is running version 2.2.22 of the open source Apache HTTP Server.

We need HTTP/2 for shared hosting. This was promised to us well over a year ago.

Many other shared hosts come with HTTP/2 support already. Dreamhost is behind the competition.
