Make WordPress Faster on Shared Hosting

fast website how?

How to make WordPress Site much faster on Shared Hosting.

Often heard wordpress is loading slow or time outs. People agonising on speed of site can rejoice now, they can increase speed of site substantially. 

Well there are many ways to get it done like :

  1. Get a good web hosting server (Space) SSD Hosting is preferable
  2. Use Page Compression
  3. Use Keep Alive
  4. Optimize Images
  5. Browser Caching ( Free Cache Plugins in WordPress Repository )
  6. Delete all unwanted Plugins and Themes
  7. Use CDN – Cloudflare (Free)

Page Compression

  • Gzip is a method of compressing files (making them smaller) for faster network transfers.
  • It is also a file format. Compression allows your web server to provide smaller file sizes which load faster for your website users.

Enable compression via .htaccess

The code below should be added to your .htaccess file…

<ifModule mod_gzip.c>
mod_gzip_on Yes
mod_gzip_dechunk Yes
mod_gzip_item_include file .(html?|txt|css|js|php|pl)$
mod_gzip_item_include handler ^cgi-script$
mod_gzip_item_include mime ^text/.*
mod_gzip_item_include mime ^application/x-javascript.*
mod_gzip_item_exclude mime ^image/.*
mod_gzip_item_exclude rspheader ^Content-Encoding:.*gzip.*

Enable compression on Apache web servers

The instructions and code above will work on Apache. If they are not working there is another way that may work for you. If the above code did not seem to work, remove it from your .htaccess file and try this one instead…

AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/plain
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/html
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/css
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/xhtml+xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/rss+xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/javascript
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-javascript

Further information :

Enable keep-alive.

Enabling keep-alive tells the browser of your visitors to establish a TCP connection once instead of multiple times to request all the web files loaded on your web page (like images, CSS scripts, Javascripts, etc..). This speeds up your website because the browser of your visitor needs to open just one persistent HTTP connection instead of having to establish multiple connections for every single file loaded by your web page.

Check Website performance at or at Google Speed test



Not that tech savvy.. Leave everything and install Hummingbird and just follow the plugin and see the major difference in google speed test. Hummingbird zips through your site finding new ways to make it load faster, from file compression and minification to browser caching – because when it comes to pagespeed, every millisecond counts.

How to Optimise images : Optimus 

Optimus reduces the file size of uploaded media files automatically. Depending on the image and format, reductions in size of up to 70% are possible. Several kilobytes can be saved per image—these savings contribute positively to the performance of the blog website. What’s most impressive about the compression technology: the quality of the images is maintained.

I’ve tried all the above on a shared basic server and made a speed difference from 29% to good 85%….

Caution : The use of above mention information is totally upon your own risk. Please take a manual backup of your database and wordpress sites before. Good Luck
