Hey guys. Just earlier this week I purchased my first domain for a small chunk of change at hostgator, moving up from my free hosting at weebly. When I was milling about my old website everything was nice. I stayed updated, was bouncing the middle of the first page on google, nothing much more on weebly I could do aside from link building... Something I've always been curious about was speeding up my website. I found a good little site called GTmetrix. My site wasn't as fast as it could be, so I did all I could do make it faster. Optimized images, specified image sizes, minified html and css and so forth. One thing however that has always eluded me on weebly was the ability to access the htaccess file to help my scores in the leverage browser caching / cache control headers (same thing?) and add expires headers departments. Now that I have my own website I am able to access that file. I'm trying to edit that file so I can up those scores. I have information pulled off of those two pages in my header, but I have no idea if I'm applying it correctly because nothing is happening. Also, if anyone knows how I can control cookies, that would be most helpful. If anyone needs to, I can give them a copy of the htaccess file I'm currently working with. And yes don't you guys worry, I have the original copy too.
