It would be awesome if you guys were the first to officially support an alternative to Apache such as LiteSpeed. http://www.litespeedtech.com/
Also is there any possibilty to support Pure-FTPd in the future? http://www.pureftpd.org/project/pure-ftpd
I am currently involved in a new startup after 7+ years in the field and I really like what I seen thus far while reading your site and forums.
Thank you for the complements, it means a lot
For right now we’re gonna stick with Apache as it is the industry standard for Linux machines (and many Windows machines) and ProFTPd. You can, or course install either of these yourself on alternate ports. In the event we do decide to look at alternate web service options, we’ll deffinitely check these out. Thanks for the feedback!

Another good option would be LightTPD (http://lighttpd.net) which is free and open source.
May be you could create another (light) edition of iworx which should do well even on lower end system configurations (i.e., for low memory vps systems) and may be skip features that won’t fit on this edition (should be OK even if it is like basic hosting + mail + plain PHP). May be you require debian/freebsd support for this (as redhad memory needs are more). I guess it could be an alternate for cheap+simple shared hosting, but I may be wrong.
And, I don’t know if there is/(will be) a market for this. (only then you will be working on this)
You’re not the first to mention litehttpd, so yes I’m sure it would be considered, but for now the priority is to beef up/refine our existing feature set before looking at alternatives to the core product, but we’ll see.
