Bridgewater, NJ April 2, 2008 -- LiteSpeed Technologies announced today its new partnership with Steadfast Networks, a leading Chicago based data center and dedicated server hosting provider.
Steadfast Networks hosting customers on all services including shared,
reseller, and dedicated hosting will experience faster load times and
increased speed in their web applications.
"LiteSpeed's web server technology provides a great incentive for our
hosting customers by improving website load times and allowing them to
do more with less hardware," said Karl Zimmerman, CEO of Steadfast
Networks. "Few data centers and dedicated hosting companies are willing
to keep up with the latest technology to help their customers get the
most out of their hosting services."
Steadfast added the new web server technology at no additional cost
to shared hosting customers. Dedicated server and colocation customers
will be charged a fee, but at reduced pricing. The technology will
increase web server speed to nearly nine times faster than traditional hosting services
running Apache. Customers using PHP based websites will experience
faster page load times by as much as fifty percent compared to using
"By using LiteSpeed's web server, Steadfast customers will
immediately see an increase in performance across all their website
applications from standard websites to the most resource intensive web
applications," said Zimmerman. "Other added benefits of using LiteSpeed
Web Server include zero down time graceful restart, support for
thousands of concurrent connections, and improved security measures."
The LiteSpeed Web Server technology recovers from service failure instantly, providing longer
server and website uptime. Customers still receive the same features as
the Apache web server including .htaccess support. In addition,
Steadfast Networks is the only H-Sphere shared hosting company to
utilize LiteSpeed technology.
"We are very pleased to have Steadfast Networks on board as our
partner," said George Wang, president of LiteSpeed Technologies.
"Steadfast's technical expertise, knowledge of the web hosting market, and their existing customer base, make Steadfast a great fit for our partner program. Integrating with H-Sphere also shows our commitment to provide seamless Apache compatibility and dedicated support for all hosting providers."
