Gzip is a file compression method that is commonly used to reduce the size of web pages and other resources sent over the internet.
It works by compressing the data using a lossless algorithm, which means that the original data can be restored exactly after it is decompressed. Gzip is widely supported by web browsers and servers, and it reduces data transmission over the network significantly.
At Strattic, we enable Gzip on all customer sites to help optimize the performance and speed of our customer’s websites. This means that when a visitor accesses your website, the data transmitted between the server and the user’s browser will be compressed using Gzip, resulting in faster loading times and reduced data usage.
