Once the maintenance on a new batch of servers is planned, we will be updating you via blog posts on the Status page, which is why we advise you to subscribe and get email notifications about each new post.

NOTE! For the WordPress websites, we are enabling LSCache by default overriding the settings of free caching plugin as a part of transition to the Litespeed webservers.

This measure is aimed at better page load time and overall server performance, as LSCache is a native Litespeed plugin and is considered to be the most efficient solution for WordPress websites running on Litespeed.

If you prefer to have LSCache disabled, you can do it for your website and opt-out of server-wide LSCache mass enabling/disabling by performing these actions:
Navigate to cPanel >> choose the LiteSpeed Web Cache Manager >> select LiteSpeed Cache Management >> WordPress Cache menu.

There are 2 options to manage LSCache:
– Disable – Disable cache for this site;
– Unflag – Unflag this installation as excluded during Mass Enable/Disable.

Should you have any questions regarding the information provided, please do not hesitate to contact Namecheap Support via Live Chat or via Ticket system.
