Hey all, I was wondering if there was any need to update the htaccess file at all to tell visitors to save the images for a little while.
Is it true that DreamHost somehow already automatically handles this? The reason I am thinking they may is because when I look at site statistics under status codes, code #304 Not Modified Since Last retrieval is very high for my static pages and images.
Also, with like 500 requests for a page in one day, the data transfer is only like 500kb for that day on average, when I know the average file size is like 10kb (which means I would expect 5MB per day).
So anyway, I was looking at YSlow, and they said the Far Futures stuff needs to be up. But does it really? Thanks a bunch for your input, as I really don’t understand if I need to go modify the htaccess file or not.
