What is Ping?

Ping is a utility used to send out ICMP packets to an address to see how fast the response is (and if one even exists). Ping is important when it comes to website latency as it corresponds with the delay time (in milliseconds) for how long it takes the data to travel across the internet, to its destination address, and then back to you. A faster ping means a more responsive connection.

How Can I Improve My Ping Times?

Ping times, also referred to as website latency, can be reduced using a few different techniques as described below.

  • Reducing number of HTTP requests
  • Add Expires or Cache-Control Header
  • Gzip Components
  • Utilize a CDN to reduce website latency by caching website assets on global edge servers (POPs)
  • Take advantage of HTTP/2 by minimizing the amount of round trips from the sender to the receiver and with parallelized transfers
