There are several performance plugins around.  I use Hummingbird from WPMUDev.  Here's a link:


GZip is just one of the parameters for optimization. 


f you are on managed wp hosting, not cpanel, you should not use a caching plugin because the cache system is "built-in".  That's why hummingbird over the cache plugins.  


Hope this helps,
