Benchmarking LiteSpeed cache for Joomla

The developers of LiteSpeed Cache extension for Joomla have tested it using two identical servers, but with different software configuration.

The first server uses LiteSpeed and has the LiteSpeed Cache extension, while the second one uses Apache and Joomla's default System Page Cache.

which shows the superiority of LiteSpeed and LiteSpeed Cache over Apache and Joomla System Page Cache.

To speed up your web site worldwide, you can check CloudFlare.

As a CloudFlare optimised partner, you will be able to use Railgun which typically is only included with CloudFlare's $200/mo plans for free.
