Will Litespeed really make your website fast?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if it was worth the upgrade. The CMS I'm using is Wordpress. Anyone here have first hand experience?

Can't say I've ever used litespeed but there are a few things you can do to improve website speed in general. I'll list them below...


  1. Use a good VPS they are inherently faster than shared hosting
  2. Get rid of plugins you absolutely do not need
  3. Take advantage of caching
  4. Use a CDN such as cloudflare

Those are just a few tips, you can find even more by doing your research online regarding the subject.

As well as the above, PHP7 shouldn't be overlooked, it's significantly faster than 5. If you're not on 7 then look at getting a VPS server running it, even managed VPS hosting is pretty cheap nowadays, there's not really any benefit to using shared hosting unless you're new to it all.

Agree with all the above.


If your WordPress site is uses a bloated theme, relies on umpteen plugins and your content it poorly optimised then using Litespeed won't help.


If you assemble a WordPress site properly you don't need Litespeed.
