Apache 95% faster than Litespeed!
Now that I have your attention, free porn for everyone!! No really, according to benchmarks released by UNIXy, Apache can actually perform better & faster compared to Litespeed; another HTTP web server platform which has held the title of performing faster and uses less server resources than Apache.

Everyone knows that the Apache Web server is lagging behind Litespeed in terms of responsiveness and performance. Not by much though! But what you probably do not know is that we have built a platform around Apache that runs circles around Litespeed, 95% faster to be exact.

I think a visitor will not have feeling in them,
In my opinion. Network speed is important factor of site load speed.

I never used litespeed on servers

I used both, and never saw big differences on both systems. Litespeed is just another pain in the wallet so I still go for apache.

I want to go with apache. Not many difference between apache and litespeed. In some point apache is most strong from litespeed. so I think apache is faster then litespeed.

i always find the host i joined running on litespeed and the page always load fast! :O a page become slower as long as you add high file on it such as videos and image! i'd like to check out a webpage running on apache! really, i can accept that apache is faster than litespeed but 95%?? and not because is apache but because their are running a platform with apache! did you see the others page where you need accelerator?

well from my experience litespeed is faster than apache. i never use apache and i dont find a reason to leave litespeed! for example, hostspeech is running on litespeed web server and i dont find any problem in page loading!

Open Source "Big Data" Cloud computing platform powers millions of compute-hours to process exabytes of data for Amazon.com, AOL, Apple, eBay, Facebook, foursquare, HP, IBM, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Netflix, The New York Times, Rackspace, Twitter, Yahoo!, and more. Are they all using apache?? its a text i found on apache website!

twitter is using litespeed and its fast! and when we visit the apache webpage, you'll see a box with the litespeed logo = 2 box with apache logo!

Better Performance, a lot better, more than doubled at the minimum.

More than 6 times faster than Apache when serving small static files.
More than 50% faster PHP performance than mod_php, and a few times better than suphp and phpsuexec
Support for PHP4 and PHP5 side by side, without the hassles and compromises with Apache
Minimal performance loss when .htaccess override is enabled, and not affected by the level of directory hierarchy.
Much more efficient rewrite engine, especially for rewrite rules configured in .htaccess file
Much more efficient request filtering engine, achieve higher security with minimal overhead in request inspection.

found on apache website! thay all telling that they are the best! the only person who can confirm it users of the two platform! i just use litespeed and its a good loading speed for me!

Either litespeed is faster than apache or not but I suggest you to use apache because
1. Apache has much more feature than litespeed.
2. Support more programming languages.
3. Better support

and its most important is that you must had develop you website in better way to make it fast that you apache or litespeed :)

As per my survey, the Apache is the best to use because it have different features which get the benefits to us....
