How do I use the Optimize Website tool?

Websites contain many files, like images and the website pages themselves. In fact, a lot of them can be compressed in order to get a faster page speed.

 

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).

3. Click Update Settings.


NOTE: Image file formats, such as .jpg and .png, already compress data. Do not include any image file formats in the list. For more information, view Wikipedia's list of Internet media types.

 

cPanel saves your settings to a .htaccess file in your home directory.

Select “Compress all content” and “Update Settings”. By enabling this function, the files on your website will be automatically compressed before being sent to the website viewer and your page speed will significantly improve.
