The main issue now is how to enable Gzip on shared hosting servers with only application level settings in the web.config file.
I been experimenting with different settings and so far no luck on that end.
But, I found out if you use the CDN
It increases the Page Speed greatly.
Its now at:
Page Speed Score of 95 (out of 100)
My other website:
Using BE 126.96.36.199 gets the following:
Page Speed Score of 93 (out of 100)
So with the newest change set it adds +2 points
Also I notice a big different in results from the online speed test
The FireBug Plugin
for FireFox results
In those results the kbdavis07.info gets (91/100)
standard.kbdavis07.info gets (87/100)
So the issue now with BE is the server side settings and not BE itself.
Would be nice to figure out an universal web.config settings that would work on the most restrictive web servers (Shared Hosting) that
would enable Gzip.
This way when users upload BE to their servers there is no need for them to mess around with it to get the best PageSpeed and load performance.
Just Upload and Go :)
But, until we can find that solution users can
1. Use https://www.cloudflare.com
2. Configure their own servers to use Gzip
If anyone has any questions about using
https://www.cloudflare.com please let me know.
If anyone figures out how to enable Gzip using only the web.config settings please let us know here :)
Thanks for all of the BE Developers on their great work on BE so far!!!!
BE has came along way from BE 188.8.131.52 release to the current change set.
