Why host your Xenforo Forum with UnixGuru?


LiteSpeed Enterprise Web server, with LiteSpeed Specific XenForo cache plugin (LSCXF).

UnixGuru Hosting employs LiteSpeed web server technology, which when combined with CloudLinux offers the fastest, most stable and secure platform upon which to run your XenForo based Forum.

Faster than NGINX and with LSCache (a Varnish like cache, built into the web server) it makes your website Super Fast!!

LiteSpeed has developed their own caching plugin for XenForo to fully utilise LSCache.

LiteSpeed Cache for XenForo (LSCXF) uses the LSCache plugin for XenForo to communicate with LiteSpeed Web Server and LSCache to statically cache your dynamic XenForo pages, greatly reducing page load time and server load. As development continues, LiteSpeedTech will be adding many more features – such as ESI support similar to what can be seen in LiteMage Cache for Magento and LSCWF for WordPress.

VPS Like Security, only better!

Each user is in their own container and has their own virtual filesystem, with their own copy of safe binaries and no access to files that belong to other users. Each user can only see their own processes too, so there is total privacy.

The only way that your XenForo install could become compromised will be down to what you do, and not what other customers do.

But unlike a VPS, you get the “hardened / locked down” approach of a Shared Server, which makes your environment even safer than a VPS.

All server patching, backups and maintenance is performed by UnixGuru in advertised maintenance windows.

Security, but flexibility!!

Although the environment is locked down, you can change the version of your PHP, which modules are included with PHP and which settings are in your php.ini, through our PHP selector, which makes the necessary changes to your filesystem and system settings in real-time. In this way, you can test whether your application works better or faster with other versions of PHP, or with specific modules included or excluded.

Scalable Performance

Our Elastic-Sites technology means that as your site gets more popular you are able to scale your resources to keep your site fast and responsive. You can instantly scale your site up to 8 CPU cores and 16GB of memory.

We can scale your enviroment further than this, but not instantaneously as it may require a change of server.




By swapping attack information with other hosts and honeypots, we are able to stop 99% of malicious traffic from entering our network.

Comodo WAF

The Web Application Firewall stops brute force attacks in their tracks, along with many other XSS attacks.

Security Robot

Security Robot

UnixGuru has a special security robot, that trawls log files and LiteSpeed APIs to find our who’s attacking your blog, and slows them down by working hand in hand with our dynamic “self-configuring” firewall and bitninja to thwart threats and keep out the bad guys. By looking through log files we can find IPs which are performing slow methodical attacks.
