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.
