Overview

Improved Web Performance. Easier to Use Than gzip Compression.

For Faster Page Loads & Bandwidth Savings.

Reducing file size is the best way to speed your Web content. HTTP compression allows content to be served up to 50 times faster while reducing bandwidth costs. httpZip compresses content to as little as 2% of original size with flawless decompression ensured by real-time browser compatibility checking.

Better Control Over Your File Compression

httpZip offers more robust and user-friendly compression controls over native IIS compression.


Faster Websites

Faster page loads make for happy users. Ensure your users are never stuck waiting for a page load.

HTML Optimization

Advanced HTML and CSS code optimization further improves performance and combats hackers' source sifting.

Reduce Bandwidth Costs

Faster page loads reduced bandwidth costs, and allow servers to can handle more throughput.
