How to enable gzip compression (Apache mod_deflate) in cPanel

To enable the gzip compression for your site, follow the steps:
  1. Go to and log in
  2. Look for Optimize Website entry (SOFTWARE cPanel section)
  3. Here you have 3 options:
    Disabled – which will disable the compression
    Compress All Content – with this option all content will be compressed
    Compress the specified MIME types – here, you will be able to input only certain MIME file types.
  4. So, choose the second option and click the Update Settings button. A confirmation message will appear: Website optimization preferences updated. Content compression is now enabled. Content compression is now enabled for all content.
  5. Your site is using now the gzip compression.
