Question

450k visits, OpenLiteSpeed or Nginx

What would be your best option for busy a WooCommerce website with 450K visits monthly (just shy of a million page views), Nginx or OpenLiteSpeed?

I am used to working LiteSpeed but I am considering giving Nginx a try as I read that it performs better at scale.

Hi Ta.

We’re wondering if you can provide more details about nginx “performing better at scale.” Unless there has been a big nginx change of which we are not aware, performance on WordPress with WooCommerce is still around 2.5:1 between OpenLiteSpeed and nginx. We have some benchmarks on our site, including this one on our blog, if you’d like to see some comparisons.
