Wisconsin-based Web hosting provider MonsterMegs (monstermegs.com) announced it has implemented LiteSpeed Web Server across its high performance PHP & MySQL application hosting environment. “Not only will LiteSpeed vastly improve the performance of hosted applications,” said Kevin Kopp, MonsterMegs CEO “but it will also increase the resilience of our environment to high traffic and denial of service attacks.”.
LiteSpeed web server, the main product of LiteSpeed Technologies, is quickly becoming an industry leader in the web server market in terms of performance, scalability, and security. It can meet the most demanding needs from high traffic web sites by more efficiently utilizing server resources, and has been successfully deployed on many large-scale web properties such as WordPress.com and FanFiction.net.
According to Kevin, several key factors play a role in offering a high performance hosting environment: “Top-of-the-line hardware, undersold servers, and heavily-optimized processes are all things that MonsteMegs Hosting Service clients have become accustomed to. With the help of the LiteSpeed, our environment is substantially better than before.”
All MonsterMegs plans include features such as cPanel, unlimited domains, unlimited email accounts, and mysql/phpmyadmin database services. Also included with every MonsterMegs hosting plan are many advanced features such as Softaculous (1 Click Script Installer), RVSkin, and RVSitebuilder.
