Question:

Can I reduce the amount of data transfer my site needs?

Answer by Web Hosting Ratings:

Usually yes.  Try to optimize all the graphics on your site.  Many GIFs don't look noticeably worse with fewer colors.  Don't duplicate graphics files, let the browser cache them.  Try to clean up your HTML by using relative paths, short filenames, less extras, and reducing the number of spaces and new lines.  If your site is mainly text-based, ask your host about using HTTP compression module like mod_gzip.
