Disabling HTTP Compression with Your Windows Web Hosting Account

Our Windows Web Hosting accounts use HTTP compression to improve your website's performance. HTTP compression sends a compressed version of your Website to visitors' Web browsers, which then decompress it, loading your Website more quickly.

However, if you do not want your Website to use HTTP compression, you can disable it using a web.config file.

To Disable HTTP Compression for Your Entire Website

Include the following code in your web.config file:

<configuration>
  <system.webServer>
     <urlCompression doDynamicCompression="false" doStaticCompression="false"/>
  </system.webServer>
</configuration>

To Disable HTTP Compression for Dynamic Pages

You can change your compression settings for static pages (HTM, TXT, etc.) versus dynamic pages (ASP, ASPX, PHP, etc.) by including the following code in your web.config file:

<urlCompression doDynamicCompression="false" doStaticCompression="true"/>
