April 21, 2009 – (HOSTSEARCH.COM) – WiredTree, a leading provider of Managed Dedicated, Managed Hybrid and Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting solutions, announced today it will now offer LiteSpeed WebServer as a premium upgrade option for all customers on any hosting plan.
In response to strong customer demand, LiteSpeed WebServer is now available for a nominal monthly fee, discounted deeply from LiteSpeed’s direct pricing. The technology has been available previously for WiredTree customers upon specific request.
LiteSpeed WebServer is designed to replace Apache, the default web server technology in most Linux hosting environments. Utilizing the same configuration files and httpd.conf, the two can be substituted in a matter of minutes—all without causing scripts or applications to break. LiteSpeed WebServer is fully compatible with the cPanel/WHM hosting environment.
Compared to Apache, LiteSpeed WebServer noticeably reduces demand on vital system resources, including CPU and RAM. These performance enhancements are especially significant in virtualized hosting environments.
“WiredTree offers an optimal hosting environment for LiteSpeed technology. By better utilizing system resources, LiteSpeed WebServer improves overall server performance and creates a higher quality hosting environment. We are delighted to work with such a reputable and forward-looking hosting partner to deploy our solution,” said George Wang, LiteSpeed Technologies president.
“In many cases, the performance improvements from LiteSpeed WebServer make it a more cost effective option than upgrading server hardware,” said Zac Cogswell, WiredTree president. “Normal installations only take minutes, and the transition from Apache is essentially seamless.”
Formed in June 2006 to set a new standard for managed hosting, WiredTree provides a superior managed hosting environment through customer service, innovative network design, a unique suite of services, and the latest technological advances in server hardware. WiredTree designed a network that leverages two logically separated networks – a public Internet network and a private internal network. This modern “network-within-a-network” design allows the company to securely provide a wide range of value-added services for business of all sizes.
