What is LiteSpeed Cache?

To be very short: LiteSpeed Cache accelerates your website like no other. The dynamic content is accelerated by functions similar to Apache mod_cache. They get this done by using adaptable, efficient and basically a native implementation within the LiteSpeed server. This reduces the server load, which has a favorable effect on the loading time of your website and its pages.

As mentioned, all of  our servers are equipped with LiteSpeed. That means that you don’t have to do anything yourself regarding LiteSpeed and servers. All you need to do to get started with LiteSpeed is installing the LS Cache plugin, also known as the LiteSpeed Cache plugin. If you just follow the next few steps, you’ll be just fine.

  2. Go to Plugins in the left menu and click New Plugin.
  3. Search for LiteSpeed.
  4. Click Install behind the plugin name LiteSpeed Cache.

Unfortunately, LiteSpeed will still need to be configured. By using our manual, you’ll be done in no time!

You start by applying for a domain key. This authorizes your website on the LiteSpeed optimization servers. This allows you to use a CDN, but it also allows you to optimize your images. When you use many and/or heavy images on your website, it is useful to use this. This drastically improves loading times.

Requesting a domain key takes about 15 minutes. In the meantime, we can continue setting up LiteSpeed.

LiteSpeed Cache preset

The LiteSpeed Cache plugin has a number of settings profiles, also called presets. You can use these presets to optimize the website. The range of presets are various, but the higher preset used, the more parts of your website are cached and optimized. The presets can be found under LiteSpeed Cache -> Presets.

Choose a profile and click Apply preset. The “Advanced” profile is recommended because it contains the most important settings for efficient caching of your website.

When the basic settings have been loaded, the website will place all pages in the memory of the server on the next visit. On a second visit, the website is therefore a lot faster than it was during the first visit!

Note: The more that’s cached and optimized, the more chance there is of errors in the website. At we welcome experimenting with the different presets, but we recommend you to make backups when you start experimenting with them.
