LiteSpeed hosting is a shared web hosting solution that provides users with cost-effective and reliable performance. By leveraging the LiteSpeed web server, users can benefit from improved performance compared to the traditional Apache web server, with an average increase of 20-30% in speed and reliability.
Shared hosting is an ideal choice for those who require minimal resources and are looking for cost-effective solutions. Our shared hosting plans come with a limited number of accounts so that each account has sufficient resources and optimal performance.
Additionally, all our shared hosting plans come equipped with LiteSpeed caching, which further increases the speed of your website and helps you deliver faster page loading times to your users. Furthermore, LiteSpeed provides an array of features that can help you better manage and monitor your website performance.
Our WordPress hosting plans are shared or semi-dedicated plans with WordPress pre-installed. WordPress 3 and 4 plans include LiteSpeed, while WordPress 1 and 2 plans are with Apache.
LiteSpeed hosting plans, on the other hand, are shared plans that use LiteSpeed as the web server.
At SupportHost, we believe that transparency is key when it comes to domain services. That’s why we never increase the price of plans upon renewal and always include the domain in all our hosting packages.
When signing up, you can check which extensions are available for the free domain and make sure to include it during your order process. It’s important to note that you cannot change the domain name or receive it at a later time, so make sure to order your free domain along with your hosting plan.
We apply VAT only to private customers residing in Europe. If you have a VAT number registered with the VIES, the invoices you receive will be VAT-free. Likewise, you will not have to pay VAT if you do not reside in Europe.
When ordering, you can choose from our datacenters in Europe (Germany) or the USA (Virginia).
When choosing a server location, you must take into account the location of your users. If your visitors are largely in Italy or Europe, it make sense to choose a European server to host your site. Remember that performance is affected by both the hardware and the quality of the infrastructure and thus not only by the physical distance between the server and the users.
The table shows estimates to help you get an idea of the number of visits each plan can support. Bear in mind that these are approximate values, because the resources used depend on the implementation of the site and its optimization.
With all LiteSpeed hosting plans we offer unlimited monthly traffic. The number of visits then depends on the resources allocated to that account, which vary by plan. By server resources we mean CPU, RAM, processes and IO which you see listed in the plan table.
As we said, resource utilization depends on how the site is built and optimized. For example, a static site will use far fewer resources than a dynamic site. A dynamic site, for example created with a CMS such as WordPress, Drupal, PrestaShop or Joomla will require the server to perform calculations and will employ varying numbers of resources. Through site optimization it is possible to reduce the number of resources used and fall within the limits.
So you cannot make a precise calculation, but through the estimates you see in the table you can get a general idea. In any case, you can start with the plan that you think suits your needs and then upgrade or downgrade by switching from one plan to another whenever you want.
With a LiteSpeed hosting plan you can request when ordering to pre-install the main CMSs: WordPress, Joomla, Drupal or PrestaShop. This way you can have the software you prefer without having to worry about installation.
You can check out the entire list of SupportHost compatible scripts, including: phpBB, Moodle, SMF and MyBB.
In case the script you want to use is not in the list, you can contact us and we will let you know if it is compatible with the service you want to choose.
Yes, SupportHost offers all new customers a 30-day money back guarantee. If you change your mind or are not convinced about your choice, you can request a refund for the service you purchased.
If you’re still undecided on which plan to choose or want to try it out first, you can take advantage of our free hosting. We offer a 14-day trial plan that can be activated for free and without a credit card. This service allows you to do as many tests as you want and see if our hosting is right for you.
At the end of the trial if you are satisfied you can start over with a paid plan. Otherwise you just let the plan expire and you won’t have to pay anything.
To ensure your site always performs at its best, we use high-end hardware: servers with 128GB of DDR4-2400 RAM, AMD Ryzen 9 3900 12-Core CPUs, NVMe SSD disks and 1Gbps connectivity.
Our LiteSpeed hosting offers better performance than Apache while maintaining compatibility with Apache software. So you can use cPanel and WHM and also Apache configuration files such as directives in the .htaccess file.
LiteSpeed also offers caching plugins to improve the performance of sites with WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and Magento.
From our tests, a well-optimized site hosted on our servers can achieve load times of 0.5 seconds. Performance depends on the hardware, management and connectivity of the server. Obviously in the first place, one must consider how the website was built and its optimization.
If you are looking to transfer your existing website to SupportHost, our team is here to help. We provide a free migration service when you order the plan that suits your needs. This means that no downtime will be experienced throughout the process and we guarantee a smooth transition.
To begin the transfer, we require your login information from your previous hosting provider. All necessary information will be updated for you through our ticket system during the process of migration.
However, if we have to transfer the files manually, due to a difference between the old provider’s panel and ours, then the free transfer will only apply to one installation.
It is important for us that your website is transferred as smoothly and quickly as possible, so our team will do its best to help you out.
Factors such as server uptime, site performance and speed affect search engine rankings. If your goal is to optimize your site for search engines, you should not underestimate your choice of hosting.
With our LiteSpeed hosting we guarantee 99.9% uptime. In addition, by using top-quality hardware and NVMe SSD disks, we can offer a consistently high-performance service. Compared to our shared hosting, these plans use LiteSpeed for even shorter load times and improved performance.
Another factor that can affect SEO is what is called the “bad neighbor problem.” In order to maintain the reputation of IPs we constantly work hard and block accounts that do not comply with the terms of service or that may cause harm to other accounts. In this way by using our shared IPs you will not risk penalties.
We want to offer our customers maximum customization and control. Through the control panel you can choose the PHP version you prefer without any problem.
Currently the available PHP versions are as follows: 4.4 / 5.1 / 5.2 / 5.3 / 5.4 / 5.5 / 5.6 / 7.0 / 7.1 / 7.2 / 7.3 / 7.4 / 8.0 / 8.1
In addition, with our LiteSpeed hosting plans you can also change the php.ini file settings directly from cPanel.
With SupportHost you will have the ability to switch plans whenever you want. You can upgrade or downgrade your plan directly from the customer area. From there you can also extend services with additional options.
When you change plans, while moving to a higher one, you will only have to pay the difference between one plan and the other.
