How to obtain the LiteSpeed serial number

This article describes how to obtain the LiteSpeed serial number for the following hosting packages:

  • Legacy Unmanaged VPS.

You will need the serial number during the LiteSpeed Web Server installation process.

If you have an Unmanaged VPS or Unmanaged Dedicated Server, you will need to buy LiteSpeed directly from LiteSpeed, and then you can install LiteSpeed yourself.

Information in this article about unmanaged dedicated servers is only for customers who purchased those plans before May 27, 2024. As of that date, unmanaged dedicated servers are no longer available. Our new managed dedicated server plans feature more powerful hardware to meet your hosting needs.
