How to enable GZIP compression?

Nowadays it is very easy to set up GZIP compression on new web servers. In Apache, this is usually already a default setting in the module mod_deflate. In IIS, you can set it up in "website properties" (Tab Services), and then allow "compress application files".

CAUSION: Always make a back-up of the server settings before you make any changes to the web server configuration!
