This way the visitors's browser will keeps the most of the data, which will improve the speed of your website.

<IfModule mod_expires.c>
ExpiresActive On

# Images
ExpiresByType image/jpg "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/jpeg "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/gif "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/png "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/x-icon "access plus 1 month"

# CSS, JavaScript
ExpiresByType text/css "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType text/javascript "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType application/javascript "access plus 1 month"

# Video
ExpiresByType video/mp4 "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType video/mpeg "access plus 1 month"
