Gzip compression - not working? Server doesn't accept mod_Gzip?

I'm trying to solve the performance score issue on Hummingbird via the Gzip/mod_Gzip but the server i'm hosting that site on doesn't support mod_Gzip. Is there an alternative way?

    Hi Jeremy,

    Hope you're doing well.

    With mod_Gzip are you referring to mod_deflate because that's the module required for GZIP compression to work?

    I'm afraid that there's no other way of doing this as this is the module that takes care of the compression, hummingbird adds rules to run the process but in order to be working in first place mod_deflate is a must I'm afraid.

    And I must say that this is really strange by your host, I never heard so far that the hosting doesn't support mod_deflate module.

    Best regards,
    Predrag
