Control Panel Selection

Fozzy, unlike most competitors, offers not one, but just three control panels to choose from.

  • cPanel (demo) is one of the most popular commercial control panels, has wide functionality and reliability.
  • Plesk (demo). Modern design, but not the best usability.
  • ISPmanager (demo). Good performance, a bit outdated, but clear interface.

The cost of hosting does not depend on the selected panel.

Is Fozzy the fastest hosting for WordPress?

Performance test of popular caching plugins for WordPress
According to the performance test of popular caching plugins for WordPress, the fastest is LiteSpeed ​​Cache

As mentioned above, Fozzy is the only provider in our ranking that uses LiteSpeed ​​web server (most of its competitors uses Nginx and Apache). For websites based on the most popular CMS WordPress, there is a plugin LiteSpeed ​​Cache (LSCache), which significantly speeds up page loading by creating a cache on the web server side. The plugin can save static copies of dynamic web pages, personalize copies, reduces the size of images, minimizes CSS / JavaScript / HTML, speeds up requests to the database, etc.

As can be seen on the posted picture, LiteSpeed ​​Cache is ahead of not only popular free competitors – WP Fastest Cache, WP Super Cache and W3 Total Cache, but even commercial premium plugin WP Rocket. That is, on hosting with a LiteSpeed ​​web server, including Fozzy, your WordPress site will work as fast as possible.

Installation of the LiteSpeed ​​Cache plugin is very simple: you need to go to the “Plugins” section of the administrative WordPress panel of the site, click “Add New”, enter “LiteSpeed ​​Cache” in the search bar, click “Install” and “Activate”.

LiteSpeed ​​Cache Plugin for WordPress

It is important that LiteSpeed ​​Cache supports multisite mode and is compatible with all popular plugins – WooCommerce, bbPress, Yoast SEO and others.

    Happy with Fozzy and their hosting service. Their list of extra software installations is huge and their website builder is really easy to use. Since then, I’ve upgraded my hosting package and began hosting video and other multimedia content.

    They are no longer very cheap, recommended! First of all, my websites don’t sell anything online and don’t get huge numbers of visitors, but if I relied on my site for my income, I would think about investing in a local server for piece of mind. Your sites will be in good hands, dudes. Personally I’m fully-satisfied Fozzy Provider’s customer.

    Guys, I asked Fozzy if they would move my account to another server and they did it. You wan to see how fast their servers are? Just sign up and see how fast you get FTP and admin credentials sent to you. It’s almost instantly. Thanks for the detailed explanation. I have decided to just use the existing SSL certificate. Thanks for getting everything up and running.

    Very quick, very helpful support. A breath of fresh air. Fozzy site runs the php scripts I need and is half the price and much faster than my previous host. Their configuration also allows me to organise my various domains in a tidy fashion.

    All I wanted was up and running website and adequate support. I have heard of Fozzy from a friend who is really happy with their services and right before I was about to give up, I decided to give it a try. And i am happy I did. Now I have all i need and even more! I have not used any of the tools provided, but they have them and that is what matters to me right now. I am excited to start learning.
