How To Enable Gzip Compression

By -
Gzip is the most extensively used contraction algorithm for compressing and reducing the size of web lines. A contraction algorithm is a system of shrinking lines( similar as HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and other online means) to take up less space.

Because lower lines may be downloaded briskly, using Gzip contraction on your website could help speed up runner cargo times for your callers. For textbook- grounded lines like HTML and CSS, Gzip can achieve a contraction rate of 60- 80 on average. How does Gzip function? In summary, Gzip compresses a train before transferring it to the stoner's cybersurfer( i.e., a caller to your website), and their cybersurfer also automatically decompresses the Gzipped train to load the full original train in their cybersurfer.

Gzip contraction is supported by utmost ultramodern web waiters and is constantly enabled by dereliction. You can use our Gzip contraction test or our website speed test to see if Gzip is enabled on your website.
How To Enable Gzip Compression
Enable Gzip contraction in Apache using the .htaccess train You can actually use two different Apache mods to enable HTTP Gzip contractionmod_gzip andmod_deflate.Mod_gzip enables Gzip contraction andmod_deflate makes it possible to compress the affair from your garçon before it's being transferred to your caller( which is the same thing).

So should you be compressing your coffers with Gzip or deflate? In the end it does not matter important, both modules will give you with the same outside Gzip contraction possible. But, as a general rule it's recommended to usemod_deflate since it’s more extensively supported compared tomod_gzip.Mod_deflate is also better proved and easier to configure. Ifmod_deflate does not work on your garçon you can still usemod_gzip. Not every host has these modules enabled on their waiters, so make sure you ask your host about this when the below .htaccess scripts don't work. Add one of the below scripts to your .htaccess train( which can be set up or should be placed in the root  brochure of your website (generally/va/www/html/).

To enable mod_deflate :
<IfModule mod_deflate.c>
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/html
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/css
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/javascript
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/xml
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/plain
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE image/x-icon
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE image/svg+xml
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/rss+xml
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/javascript
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-javascript
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/xml
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/xhtml+xml
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-font
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-font-truetype
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-font-ttf
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-font-otf
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-font-opentype
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE font/ttf
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE font/otf
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE font/opentype

# For Olders Browsers Which Can't Handle Compression
  BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4 gzip-only-text/html
  BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4\.0[678] no-gzip
  BrowserMatch \bMSIE !no-gzip !gzip-only-text/html

To enable mod_gzip

<ifModule mod_gzip.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$

When you just want to compress certain factors or a certain train type with Gzip, make sure that you include this  train type in one of the below lists. And again, make sure at least one of the mods is enabled on theserver.However, just remove this  train type from the  law, If you do not want to compress a certain  train type.
