This press release was issued today regarding our partnership with LiteSpeed Technologies, as we are now offering their web server software with dedicated server packages and on our shared hosting platform:
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 2, 2008 -- Steadfast Networks, a leading Chicago based data center and dedicated server hosting provider, announced today its new partnership with LiteSpeed Technologies. Steadfast Networks hosting customers on all services including shared, reseller, and dedicated hosting will experience faster load times and increased speed in their web applications.
"LiteSpeed's web server technology provides a great incentive for our hosting customers by improving website load times and allowing them to do more with less hardware," said Karl Zimmerman, CEO of Steadfast Networks. "Few data centers and dedicated hosting companies are willing to keep up with the latest technology to help their customers get the most out of their hosting services."
Steadfast added the new web server technology at no additional cost to shared hosting customers. Dedicated server and colocation customers will be charged a fee, but at reduced pricing. The technology will increase web server speed to nearly nine times faster than traditional hosting services running Apache. Customers using PHP based websites will experience faster page load times by as much as fifty percent compared to using Apache.
"By using LiteSpeed's web server, Steadfast customers will immediately see an increase in performance across all their website applications from standard websites to the most resource intensive web applications," said Zimmerman. "Other added benefits of using LiteSpeed Web Server include zero down time graceful restart, support for thousands of concurrent connections, and improved security measures."
The LiteSpeed Web Server technology recovers from service failure instantly, providing longer server and website uptime. Customers still receive the same features as the Apache web server including .htaccess support. In addition, Steadfast Networks is the only H-Sphere shared hosting company to utilize LiteSpeed technology.
"We are very pleased to have Steadfast Networks on board as our partner," said George Wang, president of LiteSpeed Technologies. "Steadfast's technical expertise, knowledge of the web hosting market, and their existing customer base, make Steadfast a great fit for our partner program."
