Enable GZIP to speed up the web server with DNS

Why is GZIP compression important?

GZIP compression saves 50% to 80% bandwidth and will therefore significantly increase the website's loading speed.
The textfiles are compressed (zipped) on the web server after which the visitor's web browser will automatically unzip the files. This compressing and unzipping only takes a fraction of a second without the end user noticing.

GZIP impact on SEO

Since 2010, Google announced website speed would begin having an impact on search ranking :-).
So it is easy to guess that GZIP compression will improve seo ranking.

Enable GZIP with CloudFlare DNS

Normally GZIP speed up the replay of web server, but it may cause CPU load :-( :-(.
With CloudFlare DNS, it is possible to use the Free CloudFlare CDN to enable GZIP.
In addition to CloudFlare's CDN caching static content to speed up your site, CloudFlare also uses gzip compression to help site owners. CloudFlare only gzips the following types:
  • text/html
  • text/richtext
  • text/plain
  • text/css
  • application/javascript
  • application/x-javascript
  • text/javascript
  • text/js
  • image/x-icon
  • application/xml
  • application/json
  • More...

Check if gzip enabled?

This test will check if your domain(and ultimately the server you are hosted on) has GZIP enabled by connecting to your domain and requesting the required information.
