GZip Compression

Enabling gzip compression, compresses files thus making them smaller for faster transfers which load faster for your website users.

Why Gzip compression Matters?

  • Speed... Your website will be slower than others if not enabled
  • Decreases bandwidth used on your server

How To Fix Gzip Issues

  • For Apache and shared host utilize .htaccess! This is an example you can edit to fit your needs.

    <IfModule mod_deflate.c>
    mod_gzip_on Yes
    mod_gzip_dechunk Yes
    mod_gzip_item_include file \.(html?|txt|css|js|php|pl)$
    mod_gzip_item_include mime ^application/x-javascript.*
    mod_gzip_item_include mime ^text/.*
    mod_gzip_item_exclude rspheader ^Content-Encoding:.*gzip.*
    mod_gzip_item_exclude mime ^image/.*
    mod_gzip_item_include handler ^cgi-script$
    # Remove browser bugs (only needed for really old browsers)
    BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4 gzip-only-text/html
    BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4\.0[678] no-gzip
    BrowserMatch \bMSIE !no-gzip !gzip-only-text/html
    Header append Vary User-Agent
  • For Nginx:
    gzip on;
    gzip_disable "MSIE [1-6]\.(?!.*SV1)";
    gzip_vary on;
    gzip_types text/plain text/css text/javascript image/svg+xml image/x-icon application/javascript application/x-javascript;
