LSCache is a server-side page cache built into the LiteSpeed Web Server. Page caches save time and resources, and they do so by storing the full content of dynamically-generated pages so that static copies may be served to the user. A page cache allows the server to bypass the process of dynamic page creation and database queries altogether.

LSCache outperforms other popular caching plugins because LSCache works at a web server level instead of just an application level.

All Razz Hosting cPanel web hosting services have LSCache included at no extra cost.

For those using Wordpress, you can achieve significant performance gains and much more efficient resource utilisation by using the Wordpress LSCache plugin.

A Razz Hosting client has seen the following results on their Wordpress website so far:

Without LSCache

Average website load time: 2.74 seconds
Number of server requests per second: 8.99

With LSCache

Average website load time: 1.88 seconds
Number of server requests per second: 1,777.56

As you can see, there has been a 45% decrease in website load time, and the server is now able to serve an incredible amount of requests per second; from only 8.99/sec to 1,777.56/sec!

Before you proceed

Please ensure that you remove any other caching plugins first such as W3 Total Cache or WP Super Cache as they may interfere with the LSCache plugin.

How to enable LSCache on Wordpress

  1. Log into your Wordpress dashboard, then go to 'Plugins > Add New' and search for 'LiteSpeed Cache'.
  2. Click 'Install Now' to install the plugin and then click 'Activate'.
