I used a website speed test (https://tools.pingdom.com/#5fd89e0bef000000).

My score was greatly impacted by lack of gzip compression:

GRADE SUGGESTION
F - 0/100 Compress components with gzip
 
Compression reduces response times by reducing the size of the HTTP response. Gzip is the most popular and effective compression method currently available and generally reduces the response size by about 70%. Approximately 90% of today's Internet traffic travels through browsers that claim to support gzip.

I've searched for how to compress with gzip within Squarespace, but cannot find any instructions, nor anything explicitly stating that this is not possible.

Is it possible to perform gzip compression within Sqsp (as opposed to downloading & compressing the files with another program myself)?

Thank you!

The recommendation only applies to web servers that are being built manually. It is not possible to do this on Squarespace.
