Introducing LiteSpeed To Our Network

As our cloud platform grows we are always looking for ways to improve our service, speed and reliability.  We understand that our previous Nginx based stack had a few reliability issues especially after our partners at cPanel developed their own Nginx installation packages.  This is why we have been trialling an alternative web server technology with selected customers and partners with some excellent results.  

Introducing LiteSpeed – a drop in replacement for Apache & Nginx.  ALL of our packages will soon feature pre-installed and pre-configured LiteSpeed so you get the best performance. LiteSpeed is 11X FASTER than Apache and 6X FASTER than NGINX! In our test, websites running LiteSpeed Hosting, achieved up to 20X faster page loads compared to traditional hosting solutions.

LiteSpeed is also great for WordPress and comes with a specially made WordPress plugin to manage the server cache engine which has 100’s of options.  It’s a premium offering including in your hosting package!  LiteSpeed will be automatically available to any WordPress website, new or existing, just install the plugin, activate it and away you go.  You can download the plugin here https://en-gb.wordpress.org/plugins/litespeed-cache/ or install it from your WordPress Dashboard.

Once installed you can select a number of Preset options sets from within WordPress to make your website even faster.  We’e seen websites be lifted from a GTMetrix Grade E to a Grade A in just a few minutes.

LiteSpeed is available now and if you’d like to help us continue to trial it, please get in touch and we’ll help deploy it onto your website.  Trials are expected to be completed within the next 2 weeks after which deployment to the whole network will begin.

So through the power of LiteSpeed and it’s clever plugins we will deliver higher levels of reliability, websites that load up to 20x faster and even more control over your cache and website optimisation.
