Apache, Nginx or Litespeed

Confused about what to choose when using hosting services? These are technologies used by hosting companies and they can impact your web performance as well as your SEO. A faster-performance website is always favourable to SEO. In this article, we will be discussing the performance of web servers running under Apache, Nginx and LiteSpeed. Let’s take a look at the chart below.

The chart/benchmark was taken from Cloud VPS. The test was run by https://chemicloud.com/. Credits to chemicloud for all the hard work and determination to provide detailed and comprehensive comparison tests. Check out the link for more information.

It is clearly shown that Open Lite Speed performs way better than Nginx and Apache. This is one of the reasons why I have always recommended clients spend extra on better hosting. Speed matters for all WordPress sites. However, if you are running a small web application then you may opt for NGINX or APACHE.

Usually hosting companies will charge extra when clients want to use LiteSpeed. Although there is a price difference, i will still recommend clients to use LiteSpeed technology. Get in touch with us if you are looking to build a website and host it on a LiteSpeed server.
