Add DNS preloading to .org homepage

Component: General Keywords:


All of our pages make calls to s.w.org and fonts.googleapis.com for scripts and resources.

On most templates, we use DNS prefetching to warm up the connection, which reduces load time by 200-300ms for each extra connection.

We currently don't have this on the wordpress.org homepage.

We should add the following code to the <head>, as early as possible.

<link rel='dns-prefetch' href='//s.w.org' />
<link rel='dns-prefetch' href='//fonts.googleapis.com' />

Ah, we should add fonts.gstatic.com, too - the Google Fonts CSS calls this.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

This has been implemented in [dotorg-14683].

Static resources will get a static list of the 3 mentioned domains here, and WordPress sites using wp_resource_hints() will also have the hard-coded static domains added to their dns-prefetch list.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
