What is DNS Prefetching?

Overview

DNS prefetching is a technology that is common among most modern web browsers (such as Google Chrome or Safari). The Chromium Project explains DNS Prefetching very well. Simply, “DNS prefetching is an attempt to resolve domain names before a user tries to follow a link.” The DNS lookup takes place when you try to connect to a website using its domain name, such as getpadeo.com. Padeo uses DNS prefetching to handle this process in the background using our specialized prediction model.

Why it matters

Padeo learns when DNS prefetching would speed up your website and does it automatically. This is another way Padeo cuts loading delays on your site, driving higher conversions and a better user experience.
