HTTP/2 Configuration

HTTP/2 supported IIS version 10 and above using Windows 10 or Windows Server 2016 or later.  HTTPS/2 uses a single connection (multiplexed)  between multiple requests; new browser requests sent without waiting for other requests to finish.  For web sites hosted in virtual machines might already be using HTTP/2.  If the app hosted in Azure Platform as a service such as Azure Web Site and/or application behind layer 7 load balancer such as Azure Application Gateway, and Azure Functions then HTTP/2 is not enabled by default.
