Why Should I Switch to

You may be wondering whether could replace your current CDN on your WordPress sites. Here we attempt to answer the question “Why Switch to” by addressing some of the specific concerns that you may have.

What makes unique? has a few important features that other CDNs do not, including intelligent full page dynamic caching, CDN-level cache for logged-in users, and end-to-end HTTP/3 connectivity..

Full Page Dynamic Caching takes the power of dynamic LiteSpeed caching to a global level. Out-of-the-box, works with the LSCache plugin for WordPress, delivering your cached content around the world, whether your site is powered by a LiteSpeed server or not.

LiteSpeed Cache is the world’s smartest cache and purge system. Plus, the LSCache plugin has a five-star rating, and the most active users of any cache plugin in the WordPress Plugin Directory!

CDN Level Cache for Logged-in Users

LiteSpeed cache features ESI technology, which makes the only CDN that can cache content for logged-in users directly at the CDN level.

End-to-End HTTP/3 Connectivity was born supporting HTTP/3. And, assuming there is HTTP/3 support at the client and the origin server, end-to-end HTTP/3 connectivity is possible with If either end does not support HTTP/3, automatically switches to HTTP/2 or HTTP/1 as appropriate.

Why should a Cloudflare Business Plan user switch?


As of this writing, Cloudflare Business costs $200 per month. includes many of the same features within its ecosystem at a fraction of the price. Among these are DDoS protection, dynamic content caching, and application security for WordPress.

In addition, also provides access to services such as image optimization and CSS optimization, which are not a part of Cloudflare plans at all.

Access to these services is provided for free via the LiteSpeed Cache plugin. While monthly free quota is limited, it is enough for some sites. If it’s not enough for yours, depending on your site’s needs (and possibly your patience level), you can either wait for the free quota to replenish itself every month, or you can pay a reasonable price for more quota.


Because focuses on WordPress, knows how to protect WordPress. Brute force and xmlrpc.php attack mitigation is built into the CDN service.

Caching’s ability to intelligently cache dynamic content sets it apart. LiteSpeed Cache’s targeted smart purge technology purges updated content, as well as any other page that is influenced by that content. In other words, and LiteSpeed purge just the right number of pages. Other solutions purge too few (just the edited page) or too many (all of the site’s pages).

Can compete with APO or Railgun?

Cloudflare APO (Automatic Platform Optimizations) for WordPress caches dynamic content on the edge network. does this, too. And, as we’ve covered already, dynamic cache is smarter.

Cloudflare’s Railgun is not about page caching. It’s about speeding up the process of retrieving uncached content from an origin server. Cloudflare needs to worry about this because Cloudflare must retrieve all dynamic requests from the origin server. is different, because both static and dynamic content may be cached at the CDN level (and managed through the LSCache plugin). This not only improves the overall bandwidth speed, but it also means that can keep requests to the origin server to a minimum.

So, why switch to, again? was among the very first CDNs to launch full page caching for WordPress, and currently provides the smartest and fastest caching system for WordPress.

Other CDNs such as the reverse-proxy-based Cloudflare, or the push/pull-based Stackpath, specialize in static content. They may do dynamic content, too, but not like LiteSpeed can. is blazing fast, caching both dynamic and static content, and serving it globally via the cutting-edge HTTP/3 protocol. Additionally, is affordable (even free for sites with modest needs), and provides built-in attack protection for your WordPress site.

We invite you to give a try today!
