Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Compress data using GZIP, part of Developing for Performance: HTTP/2.
- [Narrator] Gzip compression allows us to compress…pretty much all the files that are transferred…from the server to the browser.…And this has a dramatic impact on performance,…because smaller files take a shorter time…and less data to load into the browser,…and the browser has simply become very good…at unpacking gzip-ed files.…To get gzip to work,…you need to activate it on the server end,…and that requires some server configuration.…Now there are a couple of different ways you can do this,…and it all depends on your particular web host.…On some hosts, you may be able to activate gzip-ing…through the server-side application,…something like cPanel.…
This is SiteGround and their cPanel.…And here, under Advanced, I have Optimize Website.…From here, I can either disable compression,…I can compress all content,…or I can provide specific MIME types I want to compress.…So I can list what types of files…that should be compressed.…This is a server-wide setting,…so this will apply to all my sites and all my content…within this server installation.…
