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 significantly 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 version is LiteMage Cache, a full page caching solution designed specifically for Magento sites that can make Magento stores up to 75 times faster.
LiteSpeed Cache, also known as LiteSpeed Dynamic Content Cache is a server level caching system which helps improve performance for websites with high traffic.
LiteSpeed Cache has similar features as Apache mod_cache but implemented more efficiently, and works like Varnish. It is an output cache for dynamic contents, so the usage does not limit to PHP pages. Unlike Varnish, it is built into LiteSpeed Web Server, eliminating one layer of reverse proxy and hence more efficient for static contents.
We have excluded specific URL patterns (which should not be cached, like admin, checkout, etc.) from being cached by LiteSpeed Cache.
If any client faces an issue where LiteSpeed Cache is caching any part of their website which should not be cached, please do get in touch with us to have this worked out.
Whenever a technology or update is introduced, that makes PHP executions faster, you can count on us to implement it promptly on our servers. For example, we made it possible for our users to take advantage of PHP7, which is known for its great speed benefits, while it was still in beta. Latest PHP releases always help to drop the resources usage and increase the speed and reliability at Royal Clouds we always our PHP versions keep updated you can select PHP from PHP4.4 to the latest 7.2 .
