LiteSpeed 1

We now have WordPress LiteSpeed technology in our hosting platform…

WordPress LiteSpeed technology now part of WP Fix It…

About a week ago we reached out to all of our hosting customers to inform them that we would be making a massive hosting environment change. This change was the migration from an Apache server to a LiteSpeed server. We are happy to report that the migration has been completed and what a great decision this was to benefit our customers and create a cutting edge hosting environment to further your online success.


⚙️ What is LiteSpeed Web Server?

LiteSpeed Web Server is a drop-in Apache replacement and the leading high-performance, high-scalability server from LiteSpeed Technologies. You can replace your existing Apache server with LiteSpeed without changing your configuration or operating system details. As a drop-in replacement, LiteSpeed allows you to quickly eliminate Apache bottlenecks in 15 minutes with zero downtime. LiteSpeed’s expansive range of features and easy-to-use web administration console are an asset to any effective web hosting infrastructure.

Take a look at the massive performance difference that’s LiteSpeed server technology offers compared to other technologies that are more common in web hosting companies. This LiteSpeed technology enables more requests per second per user. Putting that into plain English, is that your WordPress website can manage a much larger amount of requests per second without sacrificing any speed.


WordPress’s Best Friend For Speed

Take a look at the massive performance difference that’s LiteSpeed server technology offers compared to other technologies that are more common in web hosting companies. This LiteSpeed technology enables more requests per second per user. Putting that into plain English, is that your WordPress website can manage a much larger amount of requests per second without sacrificing any speed.

So as we said earlier we were using Apache technology on our server and now we are using LiteSpeed technology. Let’s take a look at the advantages and disadvantages of both below. As you read this below you will see the stark contrast from one technology to the other.

⚡️ APACHE

From the software Apache Foundation, this is the most used web server in use today. It was created by Brian Behlendorf and Rob McCool in 1995. At the time of inception, it was based on some already existing, formulated code, alongside some “hacky and clunky” software packages that enabled its operation.

For this reason, it earned the name Apache server (aPatchyServer). The dominance of Apache is not obvious but needless to say Apache is preinstalled on all main Linux distributors, hence, the strong software foothold. It makes it easier to run since it’s already installed.

Advantages of APACHE

  • It does have flexibility.
  • Wide selection of modules.
  • Apache is updated and maintained regularly.
  • Its documentation is extensive and quite useful.
  • It performs well and is reliable.
  • It can add more modules and features
  • Apache can create virtual hosts on one server.

Disadvantages of APACHE

  • Consumes more RAM under heavier load.
  • Spawns new processes for each request making it less efficient.
  • It requires debuggers since new bugs will be created while creating a personalized protocol.
  • Apache needs a rigid updating policy that has to be done on a regular basis without fail.
  • It is a process-based server.
  • Apache requires recognizing and disabling unwanted modules and services since leaving them on could cause serious security risks.
  • No formal support. Support is community-based.

⚡️ LITESPEED

It is one of the most recent web servers. It is relatively new in the webserver industry but gaining popularity very fast. LiteSpeed has earned a huge following in the last few years due to its efficiency. Its streamlined architecture allows companies to serve the highest capacity trafficked websites on their servers.

LSphp is one of the major components of the LiteSpeed among WordPress or Joomla PHP applications where a majority of their customers run their websites. LSphp is a bridging process connecting PHP applications to the webserver.

LiteSpeed web server is very efficient and reliable compared to Apache, even though Apache is already relatively reliable.

Advantages of LiteSpeed Web Server

  • Supports most Apache modules
  • LiteSpeed server has an event-driven architecture, which gives it high performance.
  • Its enterprise version is compatible with configuration files making it possible to replace it as a web server that is much faster for shared hosting.
  • LiteSpeed can be administered from a graphical user interface.
  • It has tweaked modules in its paid version and advanced caching options for eCommerce purposes.
  • 24/7 Support from the LiteSpeed team.

Disadvantages of LiteSpeed Web Server

  • LiteSpeed web server has an expensive licensing model compared to Apache.
