What Makes Our Platform So Unique?
Autoscaling: Access To As Many Servers As Your Site Needs

All our SirsteveHQ CP hosting services use SirsteveHQ’s proprietary autoscaling technology. No other company has access to this. Autoscaling literally means that our resources scale automatically. Bandwidth, memory and processing power is scaled up or down instantly – depending on demand. This is what makes them true ‘elastic cloud’. If there’s a surge in traffic, your website will continue to offer the same fast experience for every user.

This is because a site isn’t hosted on one or two servers. Instead, it can access the whole platform’s resources: multiple servers. It’s what makes the SirsteveHQ CP hosting special. If there’s a spike in demand and your shared hosting ‘neighbours’ become busy, it doesn’t affect your site speed. Busy sites are isolated from others. This doesn’t happen at other hosting providers, as websites controlled by cPanel are restricted to single servers. With other hosts, if you share a server with a busy site, it will affect your site too. Our powerful autoscaling is teamed with load-balanced servers and built-in redundancy to ensure optimal reliability that goes far beyond other shared web hosts – and we don’t charge you more for any additional resources you use. Using this system we can ensure our hosting has no LVE limits.

We Optimise PHP In A Unique Way

To remain the provider of the fastest shared hosting, it’s important that we use the latest technologies. So we investigate all the speed-boosting technologies available to other web hosting companies. The problem with these ‘off the shelf’ products is that they don’t scale very well. To work with our autoscaling, we found that the better option was to write our own web hosting code, which is why we developed SirsteveHQ CP.

Our developers have customised PHP-FPM and OPcache to ensure that your website gets the resources it needs, even if it’s really busy. Our code boosts performance for every website running PHP 5.6 or above. For more recent versions of PHP, the speed improvements are even more pronounced. As we’re not constrained by CloudLinux, we don’t have to impose limits on cores, memory, bandwidth and processes. Your site stays fast, however busy it gets.

LiteSpeed Enterprise Web Server

While we have fine-tuned our SirsteveHQ CP hosting to run on the Apache web server for optimal performance, we include LiteSpeed Enterprise web server in our single-server hosting packages because it's simply outstanding! This applies to our cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin and Reseller hosting. With unbeatable performance, drop-in compatibility, cutting-edge features, and enormous scalability, what's not to love about a fast website?

When you power your sites with SirsteveHQ and LiteSpeed Web Server, you measurably reduce response time and increase capacity. Our control panel plugins make configuration and deployment a breeze. Deliver blazing fast web applications with our cache solutions, and enhance security with built-in anti-DDoS features. LiteSpeed Web Server’s revolutionary architecture cuts server load in half and improves website TTFB by 3x. QUIC is a new protocol designed by Google to make the web faster and more efficient. QUIC aims to be nearly equivalent to a TCP/IP connection but with much-reduced latency. It’s on by default in Google Chrome and used by a growing list of websites. LiteSpeed Web Server (LSWS) is compatible with commonly used Apache features, including mod_rewrite, .htaccess, and mod_security. SirsteveHQ provides LiteSpeed Web Server on all cPanel, DirectAdmin & Linux Plesk web hosting and reseller servers.

Standard Features Of Our Litespeed Hosting
  • More Efficient and Fast performance: The LiteSpeed server includes an event-driven architecture, which means you can manage your visitors concurrently with minimal memory consumption and increased speed. So, when you choose the SirsteveHQ hosting package, websites, databases, and applications load faster. It can handle much more traffic with high performance.
  • Enhanced Security: When you use a CMS like WordPress, the code becomes more vulnerable, making it easier for hackers to exploit. It can easily fall victim to malicious code in plugins. Another risk is a brute force attack, which involves hacking admin login details. With the help of LiteSpeed, we can prevent these types of attacks, as LiteSpeed is more susceptible to vulnerabilities in xmlrpc.php and wp-login.php files.
  • DDoS protection: At SirsteveHQ, we enable protection for per-IP connection, request throttling, and bandwidth throttling to prevent attacks. We enhance the defense against these attacks by enabling reCAPTCHA. Dual firewall protection, with strict rules, ensures the server's security even during heavy attacks.
  • LiteSpeed Cache plugin: You can install the free LiteSpeed Cache plugin for WordPress, which includes server-level caching and many features. It supports WordPress multisite and is highly compatible with popular plugins like WooCommerce and Yoast SEO. With the automatic page cache feature, it improves site performance.
  • CMS Friendly Hosting: Completely CMS-friendly hosting reduces the TTFB for global users massively. European server with LiteSpeed and SSD disks powers up your website to load super-fast. Website optimization will also play an additional role in this. Our LiteSpeed Server Hosting packages support all kinds of CMS.
  • Litespeed SSD Servers: Our server comes with LiteSpeed Server and SSD storage to provide super-fast performance for your website. LiteSpeed Server guarantees you better performance, and the SSD storage disk ensures quick execution and data transfer. This makes it more powerful and reduces waiting time.
Load Balancing That Does More

Load balancing is about sharing traffic across servers. Other web hosts use load balancing – but not the kind we’ve developed. Their load balancing mitigates failover: if a server goes down, your site will be moved to another, so it stays online. It’s a kind of disaster recovery. That’s expected: we offer that kind of server redundancy as well, even though we use some of the best hardware in the industry – thanks to our long-term partners at Dell – and a robust 10 Gb network.

But SirsteveHQ load balancing is of a different calibre.

Our global load balancing makes use of monitors that will respond to traffic load and balance it across multiple servers when needed. Many other providers don’t offer this. The consequence for you is this: with SirsteveHQ, your site stays online, and remains fast, whatever load the servers are under.

Google-Based DNS
Google DNS Platform

The Domain Name System (DNS) translates domain names – and email addresses – into IP addresses. So when you visit a URL, your browser knows the address of the server to download the page from. It’s an essential part of the internet – so it needs to be fast.

Google knows all about fast internet response times – as you’d expect! Their global fibre network leads the industry. It provides a quick and stable response regardless of traffic. So we built our DNS platform on the same infrastructure as Google.

All domains hosted with us benefit from Google DNS. SirsteveHQ Resellers can take advantage of our white-label Virtual Name Servers and offer this rock solid, cutting edge DNS solution under their own brand.

Not Only Powerful, But Versatile Too

The Host With The Most
100% SSD storage

Many hosting companies don’t invest in SSD storage, or if they do, they use the cheapest available hardware. It’s so they can keep ‘sticker-prices’ as low as possible. That’s not the case with us: we use Samsung Enterprise SSDs in our storage arrays.

Dual 12-core processors

Each Dell web server has two Intel Xeon Scalable 12-core processors with hyper-threading. This gives 48 logical cores per machine. These have access to plenty of fast memory: 64 GB 3200 MHz DDR4 RAM. Any of our web servers can serve any website we host at any time.

Data security and offsite backups

We bake-in security to every layer of our web hosting. Our storage is resilient to the level that – in a worst-case scenario – whole storage servers and disks can fail with no downtime. We take daily backups off-site for extra protection. But that’s not all – read more about our secure hosting.

Physical security

All websites are hosted in secure, state-of-the-art data centres based in the United Kingdom, Luxembourg and Germany. They’re manned 24/7 and include high-level physical security measures. These cover everything from backup power generators to advanced fire protection.

IPv6 and HTTP/2

Our hosting platform is built for the future. SirsteveHQ CP hosting packages supports IPv6, which is the new standard for IP addresses. Our servers use HTTP/2 – a major revision of the HTTP network protocol. HTTP/2 means that browsers can request and receive more data than before. It results in faster loading websites and happier users.

Knowledgeable support

All our technical support staff have ample industry experience, having worked with our management for a long time. If you have a really thorny issue, they have direct access to our developers in the same building. They’re available 24/7 through our support ticketing system.

Frequently Asked Questions

They both have the same effect: your website loads faster. However, they work in different ways. Autoscaling ensures that when your website gets busy, it has access to as much resource as it needs, so it doesn’t slow down. A single site can take advantage of a whole server or many servers.

Load balancing stops other busy websites on our shared platform having an effect on yours. It balances the traffic load between multiple servers. It also works as a safety measure: if in the unlikely event of a server failure, it can ensure that your site stays online.

LiteSpeed Web Server is the fourth most popular web server on the internet. Nowadays, it's difficult to determine which web server is the best. Let's examine their differences and find out which one is the best.

Our cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, and Reseller hosting are powered by LiteSpeed, while our SirsteveHQ CP hosting packages are built on Apache. LiteSpeed Web Server loads the Apache files directly and works as a drop-in replacement for Apache. The major difference between Apache and LiteSpeed lies in the architecture; where Apache is process-based, LiteSpeed is based on an event-driven architecture. Because of this event-driven architecture, users can initiate server processes simultaneously with fewer resources consumed. It is more efficient than Apache. It supports full HTTP/2 and HTTP/3. LiteSpeed's HTTP/2 performance is 78 times faster than Apache's.

In terms of the comparison with SirsteveHQ CP, we appreciate that at face value Litespeed may be considered a faster alternative to an Apache server. However, it's not as simple as that - and it's untrue to suggest that Litespeed is faster than our Apache server (SirsteveHQ CP). Our custom-tuned Apache and PHP combined with the free global CDN network and autoscaling technology consistently out performs Litespeed servers as proven in the yearly Review Signal awards. Our apache servers are designed for use with our CDN here which means faster page loading times. When it comes to choosing between SirsteveHQ CP and LiteSpeed Hosting on SirsteveHQ, it all depends on your specific hosting requirements and preferences. SirsteveHQ CP provides a modern and user-friendly interface with extensive customization options at a lower cost, while our LiteSpeed Hosting boasts of its reliability, traditional interface, and robust security features, albeit at a potentially higher price point. For SirsteveHQ Hosting, your decision should align with your own and your client’s needs, budget, and familiarity with either interface. You should consider whether user-friendliness, customization, or established reliability and support are more critical for your services.

In conclusion, whether you choose our LiteSpeed Hosting or SirsteveHQ CP Hosting, the decision ultimately hinges on features, interface, and user experience. However, in terms of speed and reliability, both web servers have been optimized for optimal performance on SirsteveHQ. This implies that they are both fast, reliable, and scalable.
