ReviewHostingASP.NET – There are often requests enlarged to the web server with lot of static content. These content can be compressed by reducing the bandwidth on requests.
The following setting is only available in IIS 7 and later:
<urlcompression dostaticcompression=""true"" dodynamiccompression=""true"">
If your web server is running in Windows Server 2008 R2 (IIS7.5), these settings are enabled by default. For other server environments, you would want to tweak the configuration as I just showed, so that you can take the advantage of compression.
