    LiteSpeed doesn't allow adult websites

    Thanks to one of my customers for pointing this out. I don't know how I missed it when reading the TOS when I purchased LS, but in paragraph 3 of their TOS, they do not allow any adult contect to be served on LSWS.

    We don't allow adult content, but had one customer who was grandfathered in from before we changed our TOS.

    Just doing a little research on hosts that do use LS, many of them also allow legal adult contect and may not be aware of that restriction.

    So this is just a heads up!

    Here's the link to their TOS for the Enterprise Edition:

    Thanks for pointing this out, but why wouldn't LiteSpeed allow adult content?

    I've never noticed this before, thanks for informing. However, for purchasing Litespeed at that price, surely you should be allowed to host whatever you want with it.

    You'd think, but it's right there at the top. I don't know how I missed it the first time.

    They're not actively enforcing it or searching for it. If you were advertising as an adult content hoster I'm sure they'd care but if you're just saying we do not restrict content you won't hear from them. I spoke to them about our content policies during our research and they said no problem.

    Thanks for that. I never specifically talked to them about it. A customer of mine just pointed it out.

    This was discussed here a couple of years ago if I remember correctly. It is their software and they are taking a moral stance that governs it's use.

    I anxiously await the "free speech" advocates in this thread.

    I'm sure it's nothing 'moral' or sinister,
    just a simple business decission, based on the pros & cons ie risk vs $£s
