Node.js with LiteSpeed

Serve your Node.js applications at the Speed of Lite

Node.js is a platform that generally runs as a separate web server. LiteSpeed Web Server acts as a frontend proxy to the Node.js backend via a unix domain socket. This allows you to seamlessly run Node.js applications, like Ghost, on your LiteSpeed-powered sites.

Features and Advantages

  • Communicates directly with Node.js applications - no Passenger module required.
  • Improved response time due to native communication through HTTP and websocket proxies.
  • Allows Node.js applications to offload the serving of static content to LiteSpeed Web Server.
  • Automatically starts Node.js applications.
  • Proxies through Unix domain socket.
  • Features easy setup through LiteSpeed WebAdmin Console.
