    Gzip isn't the trick if he hosts a lot of images or video's. It's effective on large text pages, like forums.

    Go on, have a guess
    You also have to be careful if using mod_gzip as it can add significant load to the server. As Freezer, only use it to speed up sites using a lot of uncompressed resources. Images are usually already compressed.
