LiteSpeed Hosting

What is LiteSpeed?

LiteSpeed is a proprietary (closed-source), lightweight web-server. LiteSpeed Technologies, a privately held company, created LSWS. It is a high-performance, high-scalability web server technology. It can be used to replace an existing Apache server, without requiring any extra software or changes to the operating system. The best part is, that it can be implemented, without causing any changes to the existing system.

LiteSpeed Web Server (LSWS) offers high performance, and resource efficiency while maintaining server security. It also has built-in anti-DDoS protection, as well as per-IP connections and bandwidth limiter features.

LiteSpeed Web Server may assist you in overcoming the hurdles of creating an effective web hosting infrastructure, by providing a complete set of capabilities, and an easy-to-use web management dashboard.

LiteSpeed is the fourth most common web server, with 12% of websites using it. The program is compatible with most Apache capabilities and utilizes the same configuration format as Apache HTTP Server.

LiteSpeed History

A group of developers led by George Wang created LiteSpeed Technologies in early 2002. LSWS was first introduced in 2003. LiteSpeed Web Server Enterprise was released in 2007 and was designed to be an Apache drop-in replacement. The web server was integrated with cPanel, DirectAdmin, and Plesk in the same year. LiteSpeed rose to become the 16th most popular web server in August 2008. LiteSpeed Web Server version 5.0 was the first to handle HTTP/2, while a WordPress cache plugin (LSCache) was released with ESI in version 5.0.10.

LiteSpeed web server continued its growth by adding QUIC functionality in 2017, and 69% of all websites using QUIC were powered by LSWS in 2020, another major support for HTTP/3 was implemented in 2019, and 47% of total websites utilizing HTTP/3 were using LSWS in the year 2020.

LiteSpeed Features

LiteSpeed hosting can handle several connections at the same time while consuming very few server resources. It uses an event-driven design, to outperform competing web-servers. So, if speed is important to you, it might be a fantastic choice.

Mod rewrite, mod security, and .htaccess are just a few of the Apache capabilities, that LiteSpeed supports. LiteSpeed hosting can load Apache configuration files directly and integrates with major control panels. LiteSpeed replaces all Apache functionality but handles requests using an event-driven method.

The required hardware isn't massive. This is due to the use of lighter, more efficient processes. Because there are fewer hardware needs, prices for web-based requirements can be minimized, allowing resources to be focused on other aspects of the site.

The server uses the normal Apache format, and the control interface is likewise quite user-friendly. In terms of design, the interface is easier to recognize, and panel functions will be remembered more quickly than with Apache.

Another big benefit is "zero downtime maintenance," which means, you may restart the server, and upgrade the software, without affecting the availability of your website to visitors.

Apache alternatives

LiteSpeed hosting employs a configuration structure, that is comparable to Apache's. It can be used to replace an Apache server, without requiring any changes to your apps or operating system. It can replace Apache in about 15 minutes. There is no service disruption. This implies that no modifications to the settings or any other programming, that might have a negative impact are necessary. Every Apache function can be replaced by LiteSpeed hosting.

LiteSpeed vs Apache

LiteSpeed is an event-driven system, whereas Apache is a process-based system. This is the most significant difference between the two. To react to each request, Apache creates new processes, which consume additional resources. LSWS, on the other hand, allows many connections through a limited number of procedures.


LiteSpeed Technologies offers a free alternative to LiteSpeed, which is the OpenLiteSpeed open-source version. This program is better suited for websites, with a lot of traffic. It is, however, incompatible with Apache. Additionally, before OpenLiteSpeed, new features are often added to LiteSpeed enterprise. As a result, the free version may be less efficient and dependable than the corporate version. You can easily download and install OpenLiteSpeed on a Local PC. The easiest and quickest solution is to use the one-click install technique. You may then install your WordPress files and MySQL databases after the server are up and running. A noticeable drawback with OpenLiteSpeed is that it does not support Windows, hence it isn't a viable option for many businesses.
