Hello,
I check telerik.com with these addresses:
1. http://www.pipeboost.com/getreport.asp?URL=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.telerik.com
2. http://www.port80software.com/tools/testyoursite.asp?url=http%3A//www.telerik.com

and two site report to me telerik.com has Uncompressed  status and can optimized for at least 200%.
I think it's good if you enable Enabling HTTP Compression on your Windows 2003 Server if your CPU uasge is low or medium.
I found a good article from dotnetjunkies.com that explain Enabling HTTP Compression but remember you also must add js extension to HcFileExtensions  attribute becuase you use many javascript files in your site.

Excuse me english isn't my native language.
Best regards

Hello Mostafa,

Thanks for the suggestion. This really seems to be a good thing to do for our website. We are going to make further research on the topic and once we get enough information we are going to try it.

Hello Natalie,
Thanks for reply.
I know you are very busy people but i think do some simple things such as this can optimize performance of your site and users satisfaction.

Slightly off topic, but I wanted to thank Mostafa for posting the links to those two sites -- I had not come across them before, and I think they may prove useful for my websites in the future.  So thank you, Mostafa, for posting that.

And, I do agree that speeding up the website's load times would be a good thing :-)  Cheers!

Hello Natalie,
I check again telerik.com has Uncompressed status.
Are you find any problem with HTTP Compression.
I Have about 10 sites that use HTTP Compression without any problem.

Hello Mostafa,

After doing some research on the topic, we realized that HTTP compression is not appropriate for telerik.com. The main reasons are the constantly changing information and the size of the site. Probably you have used it for smaller websites that's why you did not have problems.

However, currently we use caching, which seems to be improving greatly the loading times. We constantly monitor the speed of our website and if we notice it needs some further optimizations we'll immediately take the necessary actions.

Sincerely yours,

Hello Natalie,
Thanks for reply, you are right but i think you can enable HTTP Compression for your non dynamic objects such as javascripts and css to make better peroformance for telerik.com .

Best regards

Hi Mostafa,

Once again thanks for the involvement. We'll consider your new suggestion and will try compressing only some objects.

However, our webteam is currently busy with a number of other website improvements that we need to finish within the coming two months. When we are done with them we'll consider renewing our work on website optimizations. If we see the need to do that earlier we'll move it forward in our schedule.

Greetings,
