Can the website you run make that much of a difference? Yes, it can.
LiteSpeed Web Server (LSWS) is an Apache-interchangeable, high performance, secure, and easy-to-use web server able to handle thousands of concurrent connections with a small memory footprint.
LiteSpeed has many advantages and is known to be the fastest web server in the world at this time, offers greater speed and performance through a number of proprietary features.
1. The LiteSpeed increases Performance
Litespeed increases the performance & scalability of web hosting platforms through its unique event driven architecture. It has the capability of serving thousands of clients simultaneously with minimum usage of server resources such as Memory and CPU.
LSWS can greatly increase the performance of popular PHP web applications such as WordPress, Magento, Joomla, Drupal, Xenforo ect thanks to seamless, optimized communication between LSWS and third party web applications using LSAPI. The statistic shows it is up to 6 times faster than Apache and 67% faster than Nginx and up to 50% faster for PHP than Apache.
With its 5.0 release, LSWS became the first widely-used web server to support HTTP/2. Also part of the 5.0 release is LiteMage Cache, a full page caching solution designed specifically for Magento sites that can make Magento stores up to 75 times faster.
2. LiteSpeed Web Server will increase security
Litspeed is compatible with Apache’s mod_security feature and has built in anti-DDoS capability. With customizable features such as per-IP connection, request, and bandwidth throttling, IPs that make too many connections or requests or ask for too much bandwidth are blocked, stopping attackers before they overrun your server.
3. You get better results and more profit
Downtime and lost visitors is lost profit. If you run a busy ecommerce web site you don’t want your web site to be down for a single minute. That will mean lost visitors which might be lost orders and lost revenue. LiteSpeed will give you the extra performance and efficiency so that your uptime is better, your server is not busy and you don’t lose visitors.
