Websites, at LiteSpeed.

Written by Jo Stonehouse
We recently announced the addition of Redis and Memcached to our Business Hosting Plans, two of the most widely used solutions to accelerate database queries through caching.

Today, we're introducing another speed enhancing tool - LiteSpeed Cache.

LiteSpeed Cache can dramatically increase the speed of your website. This can have significant impact on your search engine ranking and also improve your user experience and the number of prospective customers your business converts.

Once implemented, your site will operate, quite literally, at light speed.

The performance is simply breathtaking.

Want more speed? You got it. Redis & Memcached are now available!

The developers among you who have heard about these technologies will no doubt be incredibly excited to hear this.

But don't be despondent if you haven't the first idea what Redis or Memcached are - we'll explain everything to you in this post, and let you know how you can implement them.

And best of all, we're able to make Redis and Memcached available on shared hosting - both now included as standard with our Business Hosting plans.

Even better website security... protected by a Ninja.

High Performance Hosting on a Budget: Redis, Varnish & CloudFlare Railgun

Warning: this is a long read. We make no apologies about it. What we cover in this post tries to explain in as simple terms as possible what it takes to optimise a web site so that it is lightning fast and scalable to handle very high numbers of visitors. The techniques we use are applicable to most applications our customers usually build their sites on, such as WordPress, Drupal, Joomla and Magento, amongst others. What's more, these techniques enable you to increase speed and capacity without great expense.


This isn't so much of a technical rundown for industry experts, but moreover, it's aimed at web site owners. If you run a web site that is either growing in popularity, likely to need to handle a high surge of traffic very rapidly, or which you simply want running at lightning fast speeds, this post will give you the basic understanding of what is involved.
