If, like so many other online businesses, you use the Apache HTTP server that has been the Internet's most popular web server since April 1996, you will doubtless appreciate its open-source functionality and suitability for such modern operating systems as Windows NT and UNIX. But what happens if you need to boost the loading times of your site's pages?

Chances are that you'll turn to Google, and the mod_pagespeed module that it writes, frequently updates and offers for free to users of the Apache httpd server. This open-source module has been designed to make websites load quicker, via the automatic optimisation of web pages and the resources on them.

Web performance best practices are automatically applied by mod_pagespeed to pages and associated assets, the latter including JavaScript, CSS and images. It's a module that allows website owners to boost the performance of their pages while avoiding the modification of existing content or workflow. But it isn't always so easy to extract the maximum potential from mod_pagespeed. That's why we have implementation specialists on hand who can provide suitably tailored advice on its use for your own website. 

What help may you require with mod_pagespeed implementations?

There are various ways of implementing mod_pagespeed, and with the help of Proxar IT Consulting's seasoned and informed engineers, you can ensure that implementation with minimum stress and hassle. We know that you may lack the in-depth technical expertise that is needed to implement the module with confidence, so we can ensure that every aspect of it works suitably for your own website. 

However, we aren't just about providing that initial mod_pagespeed implementation - as we also specialise in the resolution of all subsequent issues that you may encounter. It may be the case that mod_pagespeed is failing to rewrite any of your pages, or you may be presented with a confusing error message. Or perhaps the module is not rewriting pages produced from mod_php, or its use causes the display of an XML Parsing Error message? 

There are so many things that can go wrong with mod_pagespeed, but our implementation specialists can ensure that everything goes right when it is used for your own website. On the subject of the module going right, it is so effective for so many users due to its incorporation of a range of filters. Some of these are core filters that ensure the safe optimisation of your site's content without any impact on its behaviour or appearance. 

In addition, however, various advanced filters allow for higher performance improvements to be obtained when turned on by the site owner - and Proxar IT Consulting's engineers can identify and explain each and every one of them to you, according to your specific requirements. 

Make web pages faster with mod_pagespeed's many filters

Choose the right filters for mod_pagespeed, and you can suitably rewrite the pages of your website so that latency and bandwidth are reduced. Examples of these filters include an 'Add Instrumentation' filter that adds client-side latency instrumentation, a 'Combine CSS' filter that combines multiple CSS files into one, and a 'Remove Quotes' filter for the removal of unnecessary quotes in HTML tags. 

The list goes on and on, with various filters existing that enable your website's cacheability to be enhanced, as well as that allow you to defer the execution of JavaScript in the HTML, inline small internal CSS files, insert a Google Analytics JavaScript snippet, minify CSS, sprite images or remove unnecessary URL prefixes - among so many possibilities.
