Apache 2.0 and 2.2 allow you to compress content using mod_deflate before sending it to the visitor's browser. The types of content to be compressed are specified by MIME type. The mod_deflate module provides similar functionality as mod_gzip.
Mod_deflate is available on all our Linux based hosting packages, including Shared, Reseller, VPS and Dedicated Server plans.
You can enable or disable it in cPanel by doing the following:
- Login to cPanel.
- In the Software/Services section, click on Optimize Website.
Under Compress Content, select the appropriate option:
- Compress all content
- Compress the specified MIME types
- Specify the MIME types if you selected Compress the specified MIME types.
- Click Update Settings.
These settings will be applied to your entire cPanel account.
