LiteSpeed Features

LiteSpeed Web Server has numerous features to make your server stronger, more powerful and more versatile.

  • LSWS Is Apache Compatible
    LiteSpeed Web Server is compatible with commonly used Apache features, including mod_rewrite, .htaccess, and mod_security. LSWS can load Apache configuration files directly and works as a drop-in replacement for Apache.
  • LSWS Increases Performance and Stability
    With its streamlined event-driven architecture, LiteSpeed Web Server can serve thousands of clients concurrently with minimal memory consumption and CPU usage. LSWS’s highly optimized code serves static content faster, taking advantage of high-performance kernel syscalls, while LSAPI maximizes PHP performance.
  • LSWS Increases Server Security
    LiteSpeed Web Server is mod_security compatible and has a host of built-in anti-DDoS features, like bandwidth and connection throttling. The LightSpeed team works constantly to address the Internet’s newest security issues — such as SSL BEAST attacks — and release security updates as soon as new attack methods become known.
