Google Shuts Down PageSpeed
Google has pulled the plug on its PageSpeed Service.
The service was launched 4.5 years ago to help optimize websites for faster delivery. Google notes that users leveraging the service must change their DNS before August 3rd, 2015 or their sites will become completely unavailable.
Google also provides some options for those looking for alternatives to the PageSpeed Service. These options include checking to see if their hosting provider offers any solutions, as Google notes that many already integrate PageSpeed into their platforms. Additionally, users can leverage PageSpeed modules for many common Web servers, including modules for Apache, Nginx and IIS. Google also notes that users can leverage cloud-based alternatives, including EdgeCast Edge Optimizer, which integrates PageSpeed with its CDN offering.
