Check & Add GZIP Browser Compression



15. April 2015


Compressing your content saves bandwidth and improves render time, particular on devices with slow internet connections. Compression allows your web server to provide smaller file sizes that load faster for your visitors. Compression of your HTML and CSS files with gzip typically saves around 50 to 70 % of the file size.

Check if GZIP Compression is active on your website

  1. HTTP Compression test
  2. Check GZIP Compression

Adding GZIP Compression via your htaccess (Apache)

Adding GZIP Compression on NGINX

Adding GZIP Compression via a WordPress Plugin

A good candidate is the WP Far Future Expiration Plugin ,which not only activates GZIP compression but adds file expiration for various static file types.
