Very simple method to speed up websites that use wordpress as backend using .htaccess methodology

Add the below stuff whatever i have given in your .htaccess file simple. 🙂

gzip files

gzip allows you to compress files, so obviously that means they load faster. The code below will gzip html, text, css, js and php files:

<ifModule mod_gzip.c>
  mod_gzip_on Yes
  mod_gzip_dechunk Yes
  mod_gzip_item_include file \.(html?|txt|css|js|php)$
  mod_gzip_item_include handler ^cgi-script$
  mod_gzip_item_include mime ^text/.*
  mod_gzip_item_include mime ^application/x-javascript.*
  mod_gzip_item_exclude mime ^image/.*
  mod_gzip_item_exclude rspheader ^Content-Encoding:.*gzip.*

Block spammers

After stopping spammers, we’re now blocking them too! Change the line deny from 123.346 etc to include the IP of said spammer.


order allow, deny

allow from all

deny from 123.456.789


Use PHP compression

Another compression technique, this time for PHP. At this rate, your blog will be compressed to 1kb!

# php compression – use with caution
<ifmodule mod_php4.c>
php_value zlib.output_compression 16386

Some more to be added.Will be doing that soon. Enjoy my post guys :)
One more thing always

Protect Your htaccess
# protect the htaccess file

  <files .htaccess>

  order allow,deny

  deny from all
