Finally found one web hosting company is using high-speed infrastructure allowing me to have extremely fast loading websites. With the rise of mobile devices accessing the Internet and Google’s constantly changing algorithm, there has never been a more critical time than ever to have my website optimized for speed. One essential element in their infrastructure is using all LiteSpeed web server. LiteSpeed is a lightweight piece of server software that conserves resources without sacrificing performance, security, compatibility, or convenience.
