litespeed enterprise review
15 days review .. litespeed enterprise web server
We have installed litespeed on our 4 servers ...
2 are cpanel
1 is Direct admin
1 is Plesk ..
All have websites running shopping carts, joomla cms, drupal cms, os commerce, etc....
None of our customers had any problem ... and all of them reported super fast loading ..
static websites load in a zoom ...
also cpanel loads 'like a bullet' with litespeed .. compared to apache on same server .. cpanel loads 2x times fast ...
we had problem of ddos on one of the servers .. now with litespeed its all history ..
also it seems now we can host double websites on same server with litespeed .. it reduces hardware costs ..no wonder wordpress.com uses litespeed ..
we have also tried lighthttpd .. but its too complicated ... litespeed is like plug and play usb ...
also there support is fast and have active forums ...
and they regularly come out with updates and its easy to upgrade ...and instructions in there wiki is simple and clear ..
Thank you for your review.
Lighttpd uses a different syntax for the configuration and that makes it difficult if not impossible to work with the common commercial control panels.
I agree with you LiteSpeed is great except the price and their policy (no porn, warez).
You can try LXadmin which has Lighttpd/apache(switchable) integrated very easy to use, fast and cheap too(4$/month/server).
Regarding price i request you to check offers forums .. some people post to sell unused discounted litespeed licenses ..
also checkout litespeed forums ...
I recently installed my new production server with the free vesion of litespeed. Been really impressed so far !
In my case I don't need Apache compatibility (no control panel), so I use the builtin configuration GUI. It works great. Also I am deploying rails applications , a painful process with Apache. It's extremeley easy with litespeed. SSL certificate management is also very simple.
I highly recommend it.
