This article is relating to our shared hosting platform utilizing Litespeed web server. We no longer offer shared web hosting, but we do offer Litespeed hosting options with our cloud hosting and dedicated server services.
The LiteSpeed web server 4.0 release landed just last week. This new release features, among other things, support for Server Side Includes (SSI), large file delivery (greater than 2 GB files) and mod_security 2.0 support.
To address capacity expansion needs, we've just deployed a new shared hosting web server, web 6. This server has been deployed with the new 4.0 version and it appears to be working well. Our SimGames.net hosting users have been testing the 4.0 version for several weeks, going back to the RC1 release, and everything has been stable and reliable, so, barring any issues, we are hoping that by next week we'll be ready to upgrade across the board to 4.0 on all existing servers. Web 4 will remain Apache and we do not plan to make any changes to that server at this time.
Web 6 is receiving all new accounts effective immediately. If you'd like to try out the new SSI features or other 4.0 related features early and are an existing customer, please contact our support team to have your site moved over to the new server. We'd especially like feedback from any customers currently using SSI on web 4 that are adventurous enough to see if their SSI usage translates well to the LiteSpeed implementation.
We'll post an announcement next week to schedule the cut-over of existing servers.
