Server: Apache/2.2.15 (CentOS) mod_ssl/2.2.15 0.9.8l DAV/2 mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 FrontPage/5.0.2.2635

The <ifModule mod_gzip.c> is useless since 2.2 doesn't use mod_gzip.

For mod_deflate it should look more like this:

<ifmodule mod_deflate.c>
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/text text/html text/plain text/xml text/css application/x-javascript application/javascript
</ifmodule>

but that is assuming they have it installed (and given the quality of answers you have received so far I'd be worried).

Finally...a definitive answer from Hostgator. Here's what they said: "As you can see at http://support.hostgator.com/articles/pr...chnologies mod_gzip and mod_deflate are only for VPS and dedicated servers. It is not best to use persistent connections as they are set to be killed off if they go over 15 seconds though you are able to change this on VPS and dedicated servers." Obviously the tech support team missed that memo. Blush

Needless to say, I'm currently host shopping. Many Thanks.
