Shared Hosting
I'm new to page load optimization. I've done as much reading as I can find to improve my page (http://www.webpagetest.org/result/120726_54_5DN/), and the areas it seems that are in biggest need are enabling keep-alives to reduce the number of TCP connections, compressing some files, and enabling caching of static resources.

So I'm familiar with compressing the files. I understand what caching is, but I'm unable to find how to enable it for my images and other static files. I'm on a Windows shared hosting plan. I've seen some articles that talk about doing things in a .htaccess file for Unix, but I can't find what I can do in a Windows environment. Am I correct that there is nothing I can do in my actual html to enable the caching?

I'm even less familiar with "keep-alives", but this looks like it can have the biggest impact for my site. The site is in Classic ASP, and as I said, on a shared server. Again, most documentation I've seen is for Unix servers. To enable keep-alives for my site, do I need to rely on a server setting (which I probably can't get from my shared host)? I saw a post that looked like you can send a header with your document to enable it. It was a PHP example, but if that would work, then I would think an ASP line of
Response.AddHeader "connection", "keep-alive"
might work. Does that make sense or am I way off?
