HTTP compression speeds up file delivery across the Internet, keeps your users happy with faster page loads, and dramatically reduces bandwidth costs. Compression was non-existent on IIS 4 and broken on IIS 5, but Windows Server 2003 with Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0 now offers great out-of-the-box compression embedded into the core Web server code itself. ZipEnable allows you to easily get the absolute most out of IIS 6 built-in compression. While Port80 Software's httpZip is the best ISAPI compression solution for Windows Web servers, we highly recommend that you use the internal compression engine in IIS 6.0 - it's lightning fast, incurs minimal resource penalties, and you already bought it when you bought the OS.
ZipEnable also provides real-time browser compatibility checking to make sure that you only send compressed content to browsers that can handle decompression, and CPU roll-off to keep compression CPU cycles within your comfort zone. ZipEnable is available as a free 30-day trial, and, like all Port80 Software products, ZipEnable includes free technical support. IIS 6 compression works -- you just need ZipEnable to manage it safely and efficiently!
