LiteSpeed Technology

LiteSpeed Web Server is the leading high-performance, high-scalability web server. It is developed to replace Apache which is the most commonly used web server for web hosting providers.

Key Advantages

Resilience to Denial of Service Attacks: In this day and age, denial of service (DoS) attacks are some of the most popular threats on the web. LiteSpeed offers built-in protection to automatically mitigate such attacks and perform throttling to preserve system resources.

Request Filter: LiteSpeed has developed a module known as Request Filter to offer full compatibility for mod_security rulesets, and does so in a very efficient manner, to reduce impact on performance and resource usage. Oryon utilizes the Request Filter feature to protect hosted applications from popular exploitations and vulnerabilities.

Zero Downtime Graceful Restart: LiteSpeed allows Oryon to maximize web server uptime by making no interruption to service when restarted - whether that is for a simple configuration change, or a core software update.

PHPSUEXEC Without Bottlenecks: Using the highly optimized LSAPI for PHP, Oryon runs phpsuexec on all servers without the typical performance bottleneck it introduces on Apache based systems. This provides an added layer of security by allowing all PHP scripts to run as the username of the account they are on, which negates the need for unsecure file permissions. Furthermore, it is possible to perform automatic upgrades of applications such as WordPress as a result of this as well.
