, a provider of cPanel/WHM-based Web Hosting and Reseller hosting solutions, announced today it has deployed LiteSpeed Web Server to replace Apache on its entire fleet of Linux hosting servers.
First introduced in 2002, LiteSpeed offers the industry’s leading alternative to Apache, the default web server used most widely on Linux servers. In comparison to Apache, LiteSpeed offers significantly greater system efficiency and enhanced performance for PHP-powered web sites.
“We have an obligation to our customers to offer the best-optimized, most robust hosting environment possible. While we have enjoyed years of stability and security with Apache, we have deployed LiteSpeed to take our hosting platform to the next level, and ultimately meet the need for efficiency and performance,” said John Lewis, AllureHost CEO.
LiteSpeed’s compatibility with Apache also has enabled AllureHost to execute a seamless transition between the two technologies. Hosting users are not required to modify web site configuration or make changes to scripts with the deployment of LiteSpeed.
AllureHost hosts customers in the WiredTree 427 LaSalle data center facility, located adjacent to the Chicago Board of Trade in downtown Chicago. The facility is SAS 70 certified and features three 3000 Amp, 480 Volt, three-phase power feeds from multiple sub-stations. In the event of power grid failure, the facility can run autonomously on three 2-MegaWatt (MW) electrical generators. WiredTree utilizes a variety of data transit providers, including Level(3), Sprint, Savvis, NTT Communications, and Cogent Communications.
Founded in September 2005 by former webmasters, AllureHost is a provider of cPanel/WHM-based Shared and Reseller hosting solutions for individuals and businesses. The company offers a 60-day money back guarantee and a 99.9% uptime guarantee, allowing clients to receive credits if the threshold is not met.
