Increase Your Server Capacity with Premium LiteSpeed Web Servers
Teaming up with LiteSpeed Technologies has given our customers a powerful new option to consider when choosing from Liquid Web’s expansive suite of hosting solutions. As a high-performance alternative to Apache, access to LiteSpeed offers Liquid Web customers a premium web hosting environment that is superior in both raw speed and scalability. With LiteSpeed Servers, existing web delivery platforms will see increases in performance, security, and decreased latency.
LiteSpeed’s incredible speed and scalability originates from its asynchronous event-drive (AE) architecture, a departure from Apache’s Multi Process Modules, or MPMs, such as Prefork and Worker. LiteSpeed’s single-threaded network application is able to perform faster than applications using Apache MPMs because of its sheer efficiency and the ability to minimize all possible operational overhead. LiteSpeed’s design removes the need for unnecessary context switches, memory allocation and lock contentions that are present in Apache’s MPM based architecture. These features all add up to faster computing times, increased the PHP performance and security, and doubled server capacity.
