7/29/2013 – Comparing LiteSpeed Webservers

Posted by Jamison on 29 07 2013.

Increased cPanel population implies more individuals who search for the best add on to use for their new servers or websites. LiteSpeed Webserver (LSWS) is one of the highly recommended cPanel add on that offers highly scalable server system, offering a wide variety of features that you’ll find useful in the process.

 

Differences in client profiles and types move LSWS experts to offer different license options that will match their requirements. Clients can choose the LSWS Free Edition, which is free of charge and ideal for individuals who just embarked on their cPanel journey with minimal requirements. VPS owners who need better features can take advantage of the Enterprise Edition and get a leased license for using this add on.

 

Nevertheless, some clients still look for enhanced features due to their VPS’ specifications or business demands set by their companies. This is where Ultra VPS Lease Enterprise license becomes a good solution for clients with critical demands.

 

Comparing features

 

VPS Lease Enterprise and Ultra VPS Lease Enterprise share most of the features offered in the basic Enterprise edition. However, they possess some differences that make Ultra VPS more useful for specific clients. First, let’s take a look at the similarities.

 

Bearing features offered in the Free Edition

 

Basic features offered in the Free Edition are also offered in the VPS and Ultra VPS versions. Here’s a list of the common features offered by the free version carried over to the Enterprise Editions.

 

  • Web Admin
  • LiteSpeed Multiplexing Network Engine
  • CGI and FASTCGI
  • PHP and Ruby/Rails LSAPI
  • XML Configure files
  • Throttle Per Client for Bandwidth and Connection
  • Unlimited virtual hosts
  • GZIP Compression
  • JSP/Servlet AJP 1.3 and more.

 

Aside from these basic features, both VPS and Ultra VPS support the following VPS platforms:

 

  • Virtuozzo
  • KVM
  • HyperV
  • OpenVZ VPS
  • VMWare
  • XEN
  • UserModelLinux VPS

 

Pointing out the differences

 

While both options are listed under the Enterprise Edition, Ultra VPS gained its title due to features that are not offered with the conventional VPS license.

 

LSWS Version requirement

 

LSWS developers emphasized that the Ultra VPS requires LSWS version 4.2.2 or later while no specific requirements are set for the regular VPS.

 

Experts must include this note since earlier LSWS version, 4.1.13, is still available for download. Hence, there’s a high probability of downloading this older version with the goal of employing Ultra VPS. So as a reminder, LSWS experts pointed out to use the 4.2.2. version, which is the current release. Product description also stressed out that Ultra VPS will be compatible with the upcoming version releases coming from the company.

 

Restrictions

 

Restrictions for VPS include up to 500 concurrent connections and 2G memory. Ultra VPS, however, has higher memory and concurrent connections limit set at 8G and 600, respectively.

 

Memory restrictions mean that licenses won’t run beyond the license’s set memory capacity. Hence, VPS won’t function on servers with memory capacity greater than 2G and Ultra VPS will be useless for servers with capacity greater than the 8G memory limit.

 

Added requirement

 

Ultra VPS has an added requirement in case the VPS has higher spec. VPS providers offer varying server specifications to meet their clients’ demands. Ultra VPS requires 1-CPU license if the VPS bears higher specs or features.

 

LiteSpeed Webserver offers licensed Enterprise Edition for specific clients. You may be confused but keeping these facts in mind will let you know if you need regular VPS or Ultra VPS license for your server.
