With Australian consumers demanding better performance and availability from their hosting providers, VentraIP Australia made the decision in 2012 to become Australia’s first cPanel web host to offer LiteSpeed Web Servers as an alternative to Apache.
Since then, cPanel has introduced official support for LiteSpeed and Nexigen Digital now utilises LiteSpeed Web Servers for their entire range of web hosting services, from shared hosting through to their Fully-Managed Virtual Private Servers.
Partnering with LiteSpeed has brought substantial increases in server performance, resulting in reduced load times, faster site response times (by up to a factor of 4), and enhanced security by utilising built in anti-DDoS features.
By increasing server capacity, LiteSpeed has allowed us to reduce our environmental footprint and invest in higher-quality hardware which results in a better experience for people visiting our customer’s websites.
LiteSpeed are a US-based software company that was created with the goal of enabling a faster internet and lowering infrastructure costs. They achieve this through their range of web server, load-balancing, and caching products. LiteSpeed also offers an open source web server for public use, known as OpenLiteSpeed.
