First thing I would do is identify the hosting company, and look at
the details. Some of the proposed solutions may not work, depending on
the type of host.

Second, be careful of the MSO HTML bloat thing. I am experiencing this
first hand, on a site that is heavily used. They are using Excel, Word
and Access, along with PDF files. The bandwidth consumption is
extraordinary, as the HTML files produced by MSO are more than ten
times the expected size. Of course it doesn't matter if you have one
or two files. But in this case there are dozens of 500K+ files being
served. This can lead to extra cost if you pay for bandwidth.

Hope this helps.
