FatCow are a Freeway-friendly web host and offer everything a Freeway Express or Freeway Pro user need to get their sites online fast, and hassle free.


 

Description:
If you develop web sites and find that the pages generated are getting slightly on the large side then before you resort to cutting back on content it may be worth looking at HTTP compression. Every major browser released in the last five years has shipped with features that allow it to transparently decompress web content as the web page loads. This means that compressed site content gets to your visitors quicker as well as keeping your bandwidth charges low. Typically HTTP compression can save anything between 30 - 60% of your bandwidth depending on the page content.

Web Fast adds a simple command to the top of your PHP enabled web pages that checks if the browser supports HTTP compression and if it does then asks PHP to compress the page prior to sending it out. The outcome of this is that the server will have a bit more work to do but users should see an increased response when viewing large pages with compatible browsers.


Adding the action to your pages:
To add the action to your web pages follow the Page action guidelines.
 

Requirements:
Freeway 3.1 or above and an
Apache web server running PHP version 4.0.4 or above.


Browser compatibility:
All. Browsers that don't support HTTP compression are sent the web content uncompressed.
