How much traffic does your e-commerce website get? They claim to be faster than Apache according to their benchmarks.

I don't think the tests in their benchmarks are very realistic.

Quote:
A small static file with 100 bytes in size is used in this test. The reasons of using a small file are: to avoid network bandwidth bottleneck, to reveal the performance of web server software instead of kernel.


They're obviously just trying to make sure they look good.

It's not like you're going to use just the server by itself without a network or kernel, what if the alternatives work around these "bottlenecks" more efficiently thus increasing performance in a real environment ?

No Litespeed is better than Apache and is perfectly interchangeable. Litespeed just costs money while Apache is free. By extension web hosts with Litespeed simply tend to charge more. You can see the difference when your website is large and uses alot of resources.

Where are those benchmarks, all I see are the ones where they test everything in a sterile environment.

I don't mean to knock them, but it's foolish to take "I'm better than them" claims seriously without real data. :)

Nearly 70% of world websites using Apache. Source: http://greatstatistics.com/

So I would also go with Apache

Enterprise version of Litespeed rocks at the top but it ain't cheap.

A better and free alternative would be lighttpd, also blazing fast.

Apache is a lot common but you need very good tuning to get it close to the speed of the above counterparts.

Yes, Litespeed is high-performance web server. It supports IP level throttling, connection accounting, Dos attack prevention, and instant recovery mechanisms. It also provides you a separate administrator control panel to manage the web server application individually.

Use Apache and save yourself a headache.
