In Nov last year, Google made available "mod_pagespeed," an open-source module for Apache webservers to automatically accelerate the sites they serve. Go Daddy, today announced the feature for their Linux Web hosting customers is now available and is in use by Go Daddy customers.
A customer of GoDaddy detected a 48% decrease, slicing the load time for his image-rich website from 12.8 to 6.6 seconds. "From the moment we enabled mod_pagespeed, the difference was noticeable," said Bender. "It was a simple "flick of the switch," and the site started loading faster."
For Go Daddy customers currently using the Linux 4GH web hosting platform, find out how to enable mod_pagespeed for your own website here. Other webmasters can install mod_pagespeed binaries or build directly from source.
