LiteSpeed Hosting from GlowHost

Looking to supercharge your dedicated server? Look no further. GlowHost offers the amazing LiteSpeed Web Server on our dedicated servers. LiteSpeed Web Server is a high-performance Apache drop-in replacement. LSWS is the 4th most popular web server on the internet and the #1 commercial web server.

LiteSpeed can be purchased on our Dedicated Order form if you are signing up for new service or by opening a support ticket for existing clients.

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.

Just How Fast Is LightSpeed?

Even while using a tiny memory footprint, LiteSpeed beats out the competition in performance. This benchmark compares the speed at which different web servers deliver small static files using both non-keep-alive and keep-alive connections.

With no keep-alive connections, LiteSpeed was:
- 89% faster than Apache 2.2 with pre-fork MPM.
- 167% faster than Apache 2.4 with event MPM.
- 15% faster than nginx.

With keep-alive connections, LiteSpeed was:
- 245% faster than Apache 2.2 with pre-fork MPM.
- 533% faster than Apache 2.4 with event MPM.
- 67% faster than nginx.
