Compress Content To Optimize Website

Data compression is one of the simple methods but extremely effective help to improve load speed for your website. Data on file will be compressed to small size by web server to optimize while maintaining the same quality, before being sent to the user’s web browser. The smaller size helps the transfer becomes faster and therefore display speed of website will also be significantly improved. A website has faster load speed brings not only good experience for users, but also be a priority on search result ranking. Therefore, the website data compression is extremely important and necessary.
