Sir does cloudflare and LiteSpeed manage server load ?
Like i have a WordPress site , i installed LiteSpeed cache Plugin and then i connected my site to cloudflare , then will my site give less Load than without installing LiteSpeed Cache and connecting to cloudflare ?

I mean to say that if in a wordpress site we added LiteSpeed Cache Plugin and connected site to cloudflare then will it give less Load to my server ?

Yes ;-) LSWS will reduce the server load by itself. When you use the WordPress cache, that will allow pages to be cached (instead of hitting the database) which will reduce the load further. CloudFlare may speed up the site more then lowering your load. CloudFlare is just going to cache static content (images, css, etc.). LSWS is really fast at serving up static content, so I doubt you'll see much difference from that (load wise).

For WordPress sites , which will reduce load more , w3 total cache or LiteSpeed cache

In our internal tests LiteSpeed cache was much better. You, of course, have to have LSWS installed on the server (with cache enabled) to use it.
