Get the fastest web hosting around for your Magento, WordPress & WooCommerce websites. Fine-tuned for rapid page load times.
Choosing the right hosting provider and platform is one of the most important decisions you can make when building your website or eCommerce store as it plays such an important factor in user experience and SEO. Your visitors know this and so does Google, which is why we provide LiteSpeed hosting.
Fast web hosting
Deciding on your hosting platform is a critical factor when planning your SEO and digital marketing strategy. With rapid page load times (typically under 50ms TTFB) and unparalleled features such as hourly off-site backups and CloudLinux for the very best security, we believe our fast hosting is one of the best services around.
As a website or business owner, the choice of which hosting platform to use may not be of much interest. But consider this, according to W3Techs, Apache powers more than 30% of the websites and is used by more websites than any other hosting platform. But is it the fastest?
LiteSpeed WordPress hosting is reported as 84 x faster than Apache and 12 x faster than Nginx!
Direct from LiteSpeed themselves – The test compared loading WordPress using HTTP/2, LiteSpeed and LSCache for LiteSpeed plugin against Nginx and Apache. The result? LiteSpeed was 12 x faster than Nginx and 84 x faster than Apache.
