What is a WorldLiteSpeed?
Litespeed Enterprise (LSWS) is a high performance web server. It offers superior performance to the Apache web server (standard server in the web hosting industry). In fact, a website or web application hosted on a LiteSpeed web server is almost 9 times faster than if it is hosted on a third party web server.
LSCache is one of the most powerful tools for caching on the market. It has the advantage, unlike other available solutions, of being integrated directly into the web server. Thus, it is able to offer you better performance than other solutions, since it can optimize the processing of your website from A to Z. Also, to manage LSCache, a free extension (plugin) is available for most CMS! It’s easy to use and very powerful.

System Requirements to Enjoy It
The required configuration is the following:
- Be in Pro mode, as explained in the article The World: Getting Started Guide.
- As explained in the paragraph How to Create a The World Hosting Account from the article The World: Getting Started Guide, select at least 8 CPU, 16 GB RAM and 16 MB/s IO.
Once the hosting account is created, go to the cPanel and install your favorite CMS (WordPress, Joomla!, Prestashop, etc.). Then, install the LSCache plugin specific to the installed CMS. Do not forget to activate it.
How to validate that LSCache works ?
1- Make sure the LSCache plugin for your favorite CMS is enabled.
2- In developer mode of your browser, you will see “litespeed-cache: hit” in the header.
Is the 8 CPU/16 GB RAM/16 MB/s IO selection for the whole product or per account?
You need to select these options for each web hosting account. Indeed, this solution is designed for those who are looking for maximum performance.
Of course, you can scale your The World up to 192 CPU/512 GB RAM/512 MB/s IO.
Of course, Litespeed + LSCache are available on HybridCloud. You can simply order it from your member area.
HybridCloud gives you the flexibility to create the environment that is 100 % specific to your needs.
You must know that:
– World is a shared hosting without quality of service (QoS) guaranteed.
– HybridCloud is a dedicated hosting with quality of service (QoS) guaranteed.
Nothing will perform better than HybridCloud + LiteSpeed + LSCache with a unique configuration to your needs prepared by our technicians.
On a WorldLS account, it is not possible to customize the environment as you wish.
We often recommend having both types of hosting. The World offers an environment where you can host the majority of projects. HybridCloud is best used for large sites that need guaranteed quality of service (QoS).
I cannot install LSCache because I already have another cache plugin on my WordPress. What can I do?
The LSCache CMS plugin will not install if another cache plugin is detected.
For example, if WP-Rocket is already installed on a hosted WordPress, it must be removed before installing the LSCache plugin.
Sometimes, this is not enough, because when you disable/delete WP-Rocket, it leaves the file/public_html/wp-content/advanced-cache.php and LiteSpeed Plugin via cPanel is not able to proceed.
Manually remove the file /public_html/wp-content/advanced-cache.php if it understands the term “define (‘WP_ROCKET_ADVANCED_CACHE’, true);”
Is it possible to switch an existing World account into a WorldLS account?
Our team is working on a seamless “migration” tool that will be available on your customer area. For the moment, in order to switch a World account to WorldLS, please open a ticket on your customer area.
Is it compatible with PageSpeed?
Theoretically yes. However, in practice, this can affect the performance of activating both.
The gain is very low/nonexistent, not to say less good in some cases to activate PageSpeed in addition to LiteSpeed Cache.
Is it compatible with WooCommerce, bbPress and Yoast SEO?
Yes and it works very well! In addition, the developers actively maintain development: https://wordpress.org/plugins/litespeed-cache/.
