    Good they might be, but they are really expensive.
    Sufficient to buy an entire server, even.

    Yes, their list prices do seem a tad high. We've had some discussion with them and there are, of course, discounts given for volume etc.

    I have read that you could drop it into a cpanel server.

    When I was thinking of using it for cpanelreseller.com, I thought I read about putting it into a cpanel server on their site, but I just glanced over their site and didn't see it anywhere.

    Does anyone a have experiance with litespeed on a cpanel server?

    SecureServerTech,

    Thank you for the nice review.
    Have you played with LiteSpeed internal Anti-DDoS features? It should be able to reduce the damage of DDoS attack even better, even fend it off completely.

    It should help with any sort of DDoS attacks at HTTP level. If need help with anything, please just let me know.


    Thanks everyone who shared your experiences with LiteSpeed.

    I am using free version on one server, I know litespeed does not support SSI that Apache obviously supports. however, you may relay the SSI to backend Apache at a different port.

    yeah i moved it onto one with over 500 accounts, besides server side includes and some mod rewrite rules dont work. I even think its the one that cpanel adds to htaccess that doesnt work either, but you can change them up and they work fine.

    is the way I had to do them.

    Now you can try it out without messing up anything, just read their wiki.

    I seen someone said about the price, yea that is a lil high but it would average out to hardware upgrade. Meaning you can run a lot of busy sites on litespeed without upgrading processors and ram.

    Honestly, I don't think you can accurately speak your opinion until you've tried it for yourself It makes a world of difference.

    To be honest, I don't doubt the efficiency/ability of this web server.
    However, the cost of the software is too expensive.

    $799 for a dual core? You can buy another dual core machine with that.

    I rather upgrade the memory at $25/month, it'll take me more than 32 months before I can start saving. And by that time, prices for servers would've gone down by a lot.

    Take a look at competing web servers (and again these are not Apache compatible), i.e. www.zeus.com. You won't like their pricing

    True, but then again Apache does great for reliablity and Lighttpd/Nginx does great for static serving.
    Indeed they don't have the compatibility and ease of use (lighty/nginx) but with some tweaking and configurations they can work well enough.

    Of course, I've never used LiteSpeed (installer failed to install PHP, gave up on trial).

    I don't think it's expensive at all. An enterprise customer which is what they're targeting wouldn't sweat dropping a couple grand on it.

    Cafe Manager: Free lunch? Did you read the fine print stating it was an April Fool's joke.
    Patron: I read the same way I listen, I ignore the parts I don't agree with. I'm suing you for false advertising.

    Exactly. In the end, it really depends on what you're trying to do.
