2/24/2012 – Why do I need Litespeed web server?

Posted by Jamison on 24 02 2012.

LiteSpeedLitespeed is both an Apache replacement and an Apache supporter. If you think that we have completely answered the question as to why do you need Litespeed web server in one sentence, then you may want to continue reading, as there is so much more to this than one sentence can contain.


Many of you have used Apache as the foundation for your servers since the software was introduced in the mid-1990s. It has been proven reliable many times over and until now, it has been the most stable and secure server platform available. How many of you caught that last sentence? We said that Apache was the things that each of us need to run our servers – until now.


Now there is Litespeed to form the foundation for our servers. As compared to the longevity of Apache, Litespeed may be considered as the new kid on the block. However, this new kid has the attitude that it takes to keep your servers functioning even in the midst of a DDOS attack when Apache fails. How can this be? Hasn’t Apache been strenuously tested by the community due to its open source code? Although Apache has been tested for several years, it does not mean there is not room for improvement. The improvement is where Litespeed enters the scene.


Many of you may have read or heard just how much faster Litespeed is than Apache. Tests have shown that Litespeed is indeed about nine times faster than Apache. Yet, some of the biggest improvements in Litespeed that make it a powerful competitor to Apache is its security.


Multiple tests have shown that in instances when an Apache server has failed due to a DDOS attack that the Litespeed server was still functioning. Didn’t we already cover the DDOS attack? Yes, we did. However, in today’s hostile environment, that added assurance that your servers can withstand the elements could be a tremendous benefit to your bottom-line.


Litespeed – Speed, power, and security, all packaged into a robust server platform that ready to take your hosting to the next level. That is why you need Litespeed web server.
