Does A2 Hosting support the mod_pagespeed module?

The mod_pagespeed Apache module is designed to reduce page load time and improve web site performance. It is developed by Google. We can install mod_pagespeed by request for the following account types:

  • Managed VPS (non-Turbo Boost accounts)
  • Managed Flex Dedicated Server (non-Turbo Boost accounts)

If you would like the mod_pagespeed module installed on your server, please open a support ticket on the A2 Hosting Customer Portal at

Managed accounts with Turbo Boost do not support the mod_pagespeed module. There are two reasons for this:

  • The mod_pagespeed module only works with the Apache web server, and Turbo Boost servers use the LiteSpeed web server.
  • The LiteSpeed web server already includes the features of mod_pagespeed. Even if it could be installed on Turbo Boost servers (which it cannot), doing so would be unnecessary and duplicate functionality.
