How do I install the Litespeed addon for Wordpress?
We use Litespeed web server rather than Apache for all our Website Hosting Plans as it is a fully compatible commercial alternative with advanced caching capabilities and a whole range of other benefits over Apache alone for example HTTP2, QUIC, TLS 1.3, Brotli Compression, Intelligent Caching and much more!
One such feature is the caching abilities available for Wordpress via the Litespeed addon module, you can read about this in more depth HERE
