    Make websites load Faster using mod_pagespeed for Apache

    In the past, I have share a tip on How to load websites faster in browser. But, never shared a tip on “How to make websites load faster”. This tip useful for all the Bloggers and Webmasters who are always looking to optimize their website.

    If a website or blog is faster it will help the webmaster due to the simple fact that the visitors of the website need not wait for the website to load. This one of the most important aspect for the webmaster.

    Google have announced at Google WebMaster Blog that the webmaster can optimize the website to load faster by using mod_pagespeed for Apache.

    What is mod_pagespeed?

    It is a module developed by Google for Apache HTTP Server. It means if your website is hosted on Apache HTTP Server then, you could take advanage of it by installing mod_pagespeed for Apache to make your website run faster!

    According to GoogleWebMaster blog:

    We’re starting with more than 15 on-the-fly optimizations that address various aspects of web performance, including optimizing caching, minimizing client-server round trips and minimizing payload size. We’ve seen mod_pagespeed reduce page load times by up to 50% (an average across a rough sample of sites we tried) — in other words, essentially speeding up websites by about 2x, and sometimes even faster.

    They are working up with GoDaddy.com to include this module in Apache HTTP Server. Once done any webmaster who have hosted the website on godaddy can make use of this mod_pagespeed module.

      I think this can’t be installed on a shared hosting. This can only be installed on a self owned Apache Server. Btw it will be good if GoDaddy or other hosting companies enables this by default. Nice Share πŸ™‚
