LiteSpeed Dedicated License (1 CPU) Overview
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. With its comprehensive range of features and easy-to-use web administration console, LSWS can help you conquer the challenges of deploying an effective web serving architecture.
LSWS works flawlessly as a drop-in Apache replacement alongside any hosting control panels written for Apache. For cPanel, you can directly manage LSWS through the WHM plugin. LSWS is also officially supported by cPanel. LSWS is CloudLinux CageFS compatible as well.
LSWS can greatly increase the performance of popular PHP web applications such as WordPress, Magento, Joomla, Drupal, and Xenforo thanks to seamless, optimized communication between LSWS and third party web applications using LSAPI. Our benchmarks demonstrate that it is up to 6 times faster than Apache and 50% faster than Nginx for static content and up to 50% faster for PHP than Apache with mod_php.
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.
