I'm trying to improve the performance of my site using HTTP compression (GZIP or Default) but I'm having trouble finding the information I'm after.My requirements are that I can't use IIS direct (my site uses shared hosting) and I don't want to use a 3rd party tool (my understanding is that it's not necessary). I'd prefer a web.config solution, if there is one.I've been searching for a while. Most solutions I found are very old, some require direct access to IIS, and others require 3rd party tools. I found one that looked promising at http://www.stardeveloper.com/articles/display.html?article=2007110401&page=1, but while it worked under Visual Studio it complains about app.Context.CurrentHandler being null when deployed on my site.As I understand it, there's very little reason not to use compression but I'm having trouble finding current information.Anyone else having better luck with this?Thanks.
