LiteSpeed Web Server Reviews & Product Details

LiteSpeed Web Server Overview

What is LiteSpeed Web Server?

LiteSpeed Web Server (LSWS) is compatible with commonly used Apache features, including mod_rewrite, .htaccess, and mod_security. LSWS can load Apache configuration files directly and works as a drop-in replacement for Apache while fully integrating with popular control panels — replacing Apache in less than 15 minutes with zero downtime. Unlike other frontend proxy-based solutions, LSWS replaces all Apache functions, simplifying use and making the transition from Apache easy while also allowing your team to move confidently with little-to-no retraining.

What do you like best?

Performance, the speed is fantastic and out of the box LiteSpeed works a treat, which is great. It's a direct replacement for Apache which makes it super easy to install and configure alongside cPanel. So much so that we run LiteSpeed across our entire fleet, which covers over 100 servers, ranging from low spec machines to top spec ones. We also suggest and recommend LiteSpeed to many of our customers on a day to day basis to allow them to ensure their servers are performing optimally. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Caching - LiteSpeed cache is great... but it's immediate out of the box coverage for things like WordPress and Joomla isn't ideal. I'd prefer for it to have a WordPress mode for our novice customers, that'd make it much more user friendly for them and easier to use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have a smaller to medium server, LiteSpeed rolling out can save you the cost of upgrading RAM and CPU also as it severely reduces the load on the server when configured correctly. I'd opt for LiteSpeed over a CPU/RAM upgrade on busy servers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The only issue we're seeing is customers being able to follow the caching guides and information, it's very complex for them. It's only on the UI side that I personally see complaints or problems from customers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I personally use litespeed for both dedicated and VPS installs usually without any 3rd party interface like WHM.

The improvements in page load times and response times for the aps are great and I find it flexible enough even from a power user's perspective.

For Magento and WordPress it does wonders and switching to it was the best advice I could give to my clients. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Multi threading would be a plus if it would be included in the lower licenses because even on smaller VPSs these days there is enough room for at least two processes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Just go for it and start using it. You'll fall in love with the results before the two week trial ends. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main problem I fixed is page load times that reflect into the Google ranking and conversions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I've used LSWS for some time now, Litespeed Cache and Litemage are absolute game-changers, it's simple and easy to troubleshoot, and it also provides great metrics and troubleshooting help. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I wish that there was an easier way to track LSPHP processes per user, but this isn't really a big problem, there isn't particularly much I have I dislike about it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make the switch, you seriously won't be disappointed, the gains that Light Speed Web Server has to offer,even as a load balancer and a web server, is fantastic, it can handle much more thrown at it than Apache and other alternatives can, while I, myself have some testing with products

What do you like best?

I am using litespeed for past 2 years. It handles more than double request on same server on which i was using apache.

I am hosting 1 Django website and 2 wordpress website on same $15 server. One of my website got 400k+ views per month and never feels downtime.

The Thing i like most is simple user interface provided by litespeed webserver. As a Web Developer, when i choose Apache or Nginx, i have to change the server configuration files manually. But with litespeed, we can simply configure the new website by web interface.

As i am also using wordpress on litespeed server. There is an official cache plugin called Litespeed Cache in WordPress repository.

This plugins has all the settings which includes in premium plugins like wp-rocket, and the fun part is it is free.

Static file handling of litespeed is best. It has inbuilt Gzip and Brotli compression which compressed the header size dynamically result in less response time.

Litespeed server supports http2 and http3/quic out of the box. Which allows us to send files concurrently. So that page load faster.

You can install latest version of PHP directly from dashboard. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The guide to configure different frameworks are bit old and not too the point. It will be better to have a video guide to deploy Django, React and other web frameworks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you want fast deployment and easy to handle webserver with high performance on low recourse. Blindly go for litespeed web server. It also has analytics tab to show current live requests. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Handles large requests in low recourses

Easy Deployment

What do you like best?

The way with which the developers constantly update and maintain the product, as well as fast responses to any technical queries.

The fact that it is free to use (openlitespeed) is an excellent proposition as well as it easily exceeds even the paid cPanel solution in terms of functionality. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It feels somewhat clunky under the hood which means it does not inspire confidence when hosting 100+ websites. The team are working on this though and I do see improvement here in my 2 years usage. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Drastically less physical server resources required. This means it is easier to set up hosting servers for client projects that are more performant at less cost. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I liked the heigh performance of the php execution. I liked the ESI cache feature for wordpress. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There's no real downside. It's just much better than apache server. For the litespeed cache plugin for wordpress there's few bad things related to page optimization, js and css minification. And i would like to see ESI working with multitag shortcodes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We had a real performance problem when we were using apache server. That it was taking about 4 s to generate the pgae. Now it take 2s. And using litespeed cache it takes nothing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The kind of features it offers and many of them are unique to Litespeed web server. Their HTTP2 accelerator is best in the industry, beating nginx in benchmarks way ahead with a big gap. So far, the Litespeed web server is the only one I know which supports QUIC. It is fully compatible with Apache, so I had no issues moving from Apache-based webserver to Litespeed. So far, I am tension free since the day I moved my sites from LAMP to Litespeed and it's fully compatible with Cloudflare too. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

So far, there's nothing which I have found which I may dislike. Litespeed community on slack is so supportive and it's a big help from them whenever I've faced any kind of issue. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you want your website to load fastest compared to others with the full support of HTTP2 & QUIC, go for Litespeed Webserver. Also, the Litespeed cache plugin is the best cache plugin I've come across. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- I am tension free in case if there is any spike in traffic.

- Websites run faster and load way fast.

- Google bot crawling has increased

- Absolutely no downtime so far even with a good real-time count

- Litespeed cache plugin is the best cache plugin I've come across. I found it better even from WP-rocket plugin. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Litespeed Web Server is the only web server we use for our web hosting services at Rackshare.com and PressHarbor.com. All of our servers run Litespeed for the ultimate in performance and scalability.

As a company, Litespeed is responsive and listens to their customers. We've been working with them for over a decade, and would never provision a web server without it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing not to like. If a paid license is not your thing, they even offer a free open source version called OpenLitespeed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Implementation is painless and payback is immediate. Get 2x the performance from your current servers effortlessly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Litespeed is a drop in replacement for Apache, which means that everything will work right out of the box. So you get better performance and scalability and all with an easy implementation process and painless upgrading.

But for us as a WordPress hosting specialist what really is amazing is the integrated WordPress caching plugin which gives Litespeed the ultimate in WordPress performance. No need for a complicated caching server, Litespeed gives you that and adds intelligence and integration with popular apps like WordPress.

the LITESPEED plan WEB SERVER ENTERPRISE should include more applications or better support, they have a wide variety now but I feel there are not too many for the amount that is being paid, but from then on everything is correct Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It integrates with cPanel and is a much better replacement. It a true Enterprise solution with heaps of configurable options. You can make this speed horse do almost anything. It's changed the game for all of our clients, especially the caching mechanisms allowing for excellent concurrency and user experience. The support is also outstanding whenever an issue arises. They also take feedback very seriously, which has allowed us to obtain features we needed. Honestly, we don't see another solution offered that could be better at this point in time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There's not much to dislike about the product because it's stability and performance is substantially better than anything else we've tried. However, the licensing is a little confusing at first as there are several options and add-ons you can benefit from. However, the sales team has simplified our licensing needs with a bit of back and forth communication. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Give it a try. It just works. You will be pleasantly surprised. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Latency and concurrency issues were our biggest performance setbacks. We did not like what Apache was doing for us in any form and it couldn't handle the traffic spikes our e-Commerce clients would see during big sales events. We needed a true Enterprise solution, so we ventured out for something better that was still compatible with cPanel, since that's our hosting control panel of choice. We also wanted something with more hands-on support than a free web server like Nginx. The greatest benefit of using LiteSpeed is that we are able to run more clients on less hardware, which has paid for itself and then some. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

We've been using Litespeed since 2007 and would not use any other web server software. The server is a drop in for apache and outperforms any other platform on the market, especially when factoring in cost. We're easily able to double or triple our capacity by using Litespeed at a cost of $42/month. Configuring, maintaining, and deploying a new server would cost roughly $300. It's a no-brainer. Not to mention the performance and security benefits of the software. The best part for us is it's compatible with cPanel/CloudLinux with zero changes needed. Their support is cutting edge and available 24/7. Whenever we have an issue it's resolved in hours. They're always looking for feedback and quickly make requested product changes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

LiteSpeed is able to meet all our needs and thus we do not have any "dislikes.' The only area of improvement is configuration management (i.e. making it easier to configure components). The company consistently improves on this each day, and is always available to answer any questions customers may have. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use their trial license and see the performance increase you have. It'll pay for itself quickly, especially on a loaded server. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

LiteSpeed is such a beautiful product for enterprise-grade hosting. It is absolutely powerful, runs fast, helped us decrease costs, improve security. Best of all it is easy-to-use and compatible with Apache/htaccess and popular server control panels out there (like WHM/cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, and many others).

I've used LiteSpeed for 10 years now alongside NGINX and Apache and feel it is the easiest to use, most reliable, and also easy to get support for. Their small but dedicated team is on top of all the latest trends and issues. Problems are solved quickly and I love being part of their community. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that they're are still closed-minded admins in the server world refusing to try out LiteSpeed (because it isn't free and open-source)...and LiteSpeed DOES have a free community version (OpenLiteSpeed). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try it and see for yourself. It's now easier to implement with all the LiteSpeed plugins for different CMS (WordPress, Magento, etc). Best of all, you will actually save money by going with LiteSpeed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

High server usage and basically growing pains with traffic increase. LiteSpeed will easily bring down your server usage while also integrating all the latest technologies in webhosting. We use and host many WordPress sites and have seen many miracles done. WordPress sites are now running so much faster and their admin login page is automatically secured from brute-force attacks. Brotli compression is better than GZIP. I could go on and on. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

As a shared hosting provider, we always want to offer stable, fast and scalable solutions, it's often hard to get all 3 right without adding additional complexity or lacking features.

However, the LiteSpeed Web Server manages to solve all 3, in a simple and efficient way.

It solved scalability problems with its event-driven engine and their LSCache with ESI caching support, the compatibility by supporting .htaccess and mod_rewrite rules, and the security by having an awesome implementation of ModSecurity rules.

Additionally, it supports graceful restarts that are actually graceful! And best of all, they do the uttermost to support the latest technologies such as QUIC, TLSv1.3, and HTTP/2.

I couldn't be happier! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There's nothing about LiteSpeed Web Server I dislike.

If I have to mention something, but then again it's not really bad: They update software and plugins so fast with new features, that it's hard to keep up sometimes ;) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For those who need a single solution to solve multiple problems, and who works in high traffic environments, I can surely recommend LiteSpeed Web Server at any point. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When we used Apache, we used to have odd stability problems with blackouts during restarts where no traffic would be served.

We also had issues where ModSecurity rulesets would simply consume so much CPU, that Apache would consume multiple cores simply for serving static files.

Additionally, we'd have issues sometimes with customers doing a ton of traffic in terms of requests per second, and especially if customers would serve long-running requests such as mp4 videos on mobile devices.

As an added benefit we were looking for a generic caching solution that would be "standardized" on our platform for all our customers.

LiteSpeed solved all 4 of these requirements, in a single piece of software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I like that this platform accelerates my web pages to such an extent that it has improved by 45% of its performance, and that for me is enough to choose it as one of the best platforms that improve the acceleration of all types of websites.

I recommend that you use it, and although it's not as flashy as other services, however, it's quite cheap and very fast. That's why I consider it to be the best options. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The Litespeed team is zealous about producing the best product in their class. I love how open they are with their clients and that they take in every suggestion because they're hungry for improvement. When they grab on to a good idea, you usually see something in production within days or weeks, not months or years like other products. What I love best is that when I need to provide the best solution for my clients, they take their role in that seriously and won't settle for second place. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Price is always the main objection, not that the price is too high but there there is a price at all. The amount doesn't really matter.

This isn't really a fault of Litespeed at all. The web hosting industry is packed with "free", open source, software so it can be difficult to get somebody to try out a paid solution.

Litespeed has actually made this much easier with their updated license options, a two week free trial license (you normally see the benefits within minutes anyway), and their open source web server project. This is actually another example of them putting their customers' needs first.

Documentation within the product itself could be better, but they've made great strides in providing wiki tutorials, blog guides and easy access to the developers through their public Slack channel. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I think *every* commercial or professional level web based service should be using Litespeed to power it. It's that good. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our clients range from small startup ecommerce sites all the way up through large scale, highly available, cluster solutions that support their online business. They come to us because we're great at building dynamic solutions tailored to their needs. Litespeed has become a powerful, reliable, weapon in our arsenal for combatting the challenges these types of clients face.

Performance is a major challenge we run into frequently. Search engines place a high value on how quickly a web page loads when ranking it, and our clients depend on their search rankings for their livelihood. United Hosting became very good at created layered solutions that were quite fast, but they were all built with many layers of proxies or cache solutions that we integrated. Litespeed provides a very simple single layer solution that removes the need for all of those other layers. Out of the half a dozen or more different tools that we used to use, Litespeed is able to replace most of them itself without extra overhead.

Stability is another key area that our clients are challenged with. When your product or service gets featured in a TV spot, you can't risk having your platform overload from the traffic. Litespeed boasts that they can double your server's capacity while keeping load levels low. This is not an exaggeration in the least. We regularly see clients who come to us after a business critical ad campaign fails because their servers' load was in the hundreds, only to find that Litespeed allowed them to handle the same traffic at a steadily low and manageable server load. It's often the first thing we offer to a client who is suffering regular downtime.

Litespeed also helps us come alongside growing businesses, who often hit a critical point where they need to grow in order to expand their infrastructure but can't afford to grow because they're at the limits of their infrastructure. Litespeed allows these clients to take their existing setup and squeeze more capacity out of it. As their revenue grows, it allows them to cross this threshold more smoothly.

This also improves our relationship with our customers because they don't feel pressured by us to buy more hardware or services, so when we do make recommendations that increase their costs they can trust that it is for their benefit. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
