LiteSpeed provides real solutions for real problems. These are just a few of our success stories.
SigmaWeb's experience shows how LiteSpeed Web Server's event-driven architecture and optimized coding can cut the
load for popular web applications like WordPress. LiteSpeed slashed the number of processes the server had to
create, reducing overhead — and this improvement was available in minutes through our cPanel plugin.
While nginx as a reverse proxy only helps static content, LiteSpeed Web Server
can do wonders for web applications like XenForo. With our control panel
plugins, you can switch to LiteSpeed in minutes, making LiteSpeed Web Server
a quick and easy way to rein in an out of control site or web application.
WiredTree uses LiteSpeed Web Server to give their VPS and dedicated server
customers a cost-effective solution to overloaded servers. Instead of
continually throwing more and more hardware at the problem, switching to
LiteSpeed Web Server cuts out the source of the problem — Apache's
inefficient architecture. Switching takes only minutes and pages stay
LSWS makes possible web application traffic levels Apache and nginx can't touch. It's efficient PHP handling has given Fans2Cash the speed and reliability they need to grow at breakneck speed.
In August 2014, we switched to LiteSpeed+suEXEC Daemon mode. With suEXEC Daemon mode's shared opcode caching, we immediately reduced RAM usage from 40-50GB consumption + 100GB commit to 2-3GB consumption + commit. Our services run faster, mainly due to this freed up RAM now being utilized for disk caching.
With the same configuration and LiteMage active, the average response time dropped to an incredible 0.12 seconds with the shortest transaction coming in at 0.06 seconds and the longest at 5.26 seconds (likely a page that was not cacheable). That is a 93.5% reduction in response time, over 15x's faster than before!
