There's little doubt about the positive impact that Apache httpd has had on the Internet, having been the most popular web server since April 1996. Apache httpd, or the Apache HTTP Server to give its fuller name, is a project of The Apache Software Foundation, and has more than proved its worth as an efficient, secure and extensible open-source HTTP server.

The open-source nature of Apache has enabled a wide range of modules to be written for it, with one popular option being the mod_pagespeed module written by Google. This module results in the automatic optimisation of web pages and the resources on them, so that they load faster - as the module's name signifies. 

This is a vital functionality in an age in which quick loading times have never been more important for online businesses and organisations - after all, any delay will simply result in your target customer returning to the search engines to find a competitor. 

Why should you use the mod_pagespeed module? 

The great advantage of the mod_pagespeed open-source web server module is that it speeds up your website, slashing page load times, but does so in a way that removes the need for you to make any changes to your existing content or workflow. Web performance best practices are automatically applied to not only pages, but also associated assets such as CSS, JavaScript and images. 

Mod_pagespeed uses the latest techniques in its automatic optimisation of websites and assets. It boasts more than 40 configurable optimisation filters, and is deployed by individual websites, hosting providers and CDNs. But it's also open-source, updated on a regular basis and completely free to use. 

However, you might not have yet realised the full potential of the mod_pagespeed module. You might not be aware, for example, that it not only incorporates filters for the optimisation of JavaScript, HTML and CSS stylesheets, but also JPEG and PNG images. Or maybe you haven't complemented use of mod_pagespeed with the configuration of proper caching and compression on your Apache distribution?
