What is LiteSpeed Cache for WordPress?
LiteSpeed Cache for WordPress (LSCWP) is a PHP-based plugin that provides page caching and other site optimization features, which deliver superior performance to your WordPress site.
LSCache is built directly into the server, overhead is significantly reduced and caching can be done more efficiently than with other PHP-based caches.
At Hostiero.com, we consider a cache plugin for your WordPress site a “must have”.
Why do we need LiteSpeed Cache?
Nowadays, most of the websites use Dynamic Web pages and in the backend Server Machine, resources are used to generate web pages for the user. This means more the number of different users connected to the website, the same number of generation processes are running on the server and web pages are displayed on the user’s web browser.
Now you have little idea that if your website has a lot of traffic then how much your server has to work for your users?! This makes your WordPress site slow. We all know that no one wants to spend time surfing a slow website.
LiteSpeed is a helping hand for Server which will lift up some pressure from the server.
LS Cache, from the name it depicts that it is some kind of cache and, cache means temporary data. LS Cache stores generated web pages into temporary files called cache and then when new request pops up from a user then LS Cache presents the cache files which speeds up time and saves much of the resources of the server. This LS Cache is alive for few couples of minutes and then it renews with newly cached data by regeneration of web pages at some intervals.
