  • Litespeed is a different server they tried to replace Apache in the web hosting community. Nginx is also a web server. Maybe you are confused about the WP plugin LS Cache that is for Litespeed servers only and if using Nginx FastCGI cache (no plugins needed).

    Nginx and Apache were 100% free but Litespeed you must pay $$$ if you want all the features.

Great question. You might not have heard of it before, but this uses the Lightspeed web server. Lightspeed is popular for being a drop-in replacement for Apache with a lot of performance benefits. You can find out more about it here:
