.htaccess

Use browser to cache static assets

On both web servers include the following section to set caching in browsers correctly

 # BEGIN Cache Expire Headers
 <IfModule mod_expires.c>
 ExpiresActive On
 ExpiresByType application/javascript "access plus 1 week"
 ExpiresByType application/x-javascript "access plus 1 week"
 ExpiresByType image/gif "access plus 1 week"
 ExpiresByType image/jpeg "access plus 1 week"
 ExpiresByType image/png "access plus 1 week"
 ExpiresByType image/x-icon "access plus 1 week"
 ExpiresByType image/svg+xml "access plus 1 week"
 ExpiresByType text/css "access plus 1 week" 
 ExpiresByType image/vnd.microsoft.icon "access plus 1 week"
 </IfModule>
 # END Cache Expire Headers

Compress text during transmission to the browser

Shared hosting on 1and1 does not offer gzip compression. blog.openstreetmap.de does and is controlled by the .htaccess file

# BEGIN Compress certain file types
<IfModule mod_deflate.c>
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/html
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/javascript
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/css
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE image/svg+xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE image/vnd.microsoft.icon
</IfModule>
# END Compress certain file types
