Overview

This interface allows you to configure your server to automatically compress specified types of content when visitors access that content.

Note:

Your system administrator must enable mod_deflate for the Optimize Website interface to appear in cPanel.

How to manage compression

To disable compression of your website's content, perform the following steps:

  1. Select Disabled.
  2. Click Update Settings.

To compress all of your website's content, perform the following steps:

  1. Select Compress all content.
  2. Click Update Settings.

To specify a list of types of content to compress, perform the following steps:

  1. Select the Compress the specified MIME types option.
  2. In the MIME types text box, enter a space-separated list of the types of content that you wish to compress (for example, text/html text/plain text/xml).

    Notes:

  3. Click Update Settings.

Note:

 cPanel saves your settings to a .htaccess file in your home directory. Your system administrator customizes these settings with the Apache FileMatch directive.

Additional information
