How do I use gzip?

  • Answered
Google says I can get a higher score if I gzip some of the larger assets on my web page and that this is a server side function you should be able to enable for me. I can't find any documentation on doing this except for Joomla which I have not and do not plan to install. How do I gzip my css folder or files so they load faster?
Hello, Thanks for the question about using gzip to compress files in your website. Yes you can use gzip to compress files on your site, but you will need to first enable it in cPanel, and then edit your .htaccess file to declare what files will be compressed. We have an article that will give you the information you need: How to Enable Gzip. If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know. Regards, Arnel C.
