NGINX has grown in popularity since its inception and is used for web services in a wide range of applications.WordPress
, the most popular content management system can be used with NGINX, the performance benefits of NGINX over Apache leads to a faster WordPress experience with no extra configuration needed.
Today, Nginx can perform several additional tasks, including web hosting, web caching
, data storage, web accelerator, SSL/TLS
terminator, mail proxy, TCP Proxy and data processing.
In addition to working as an SSL / TLS terminator and web accelerator, NGINX can also be placed on the second web server of the client to negotiate SSL and TLS. To serve as this agent, it efficiently manages tasks that might slow down web servers, such as compressing and caching content to boost performance.
According to reports by the Apache Foundation, it is second only to the more traditional Apache web server in terms of the number of requests it serves. Statistics that focus mainly on high-traffic sites and apps, however, paint a very different picture.
Dynamic websites that use anything from node.js or PHP
can use NGNIX as a content cache or reverse proxy to reduce application server load and use the underlying hardware as effectively as possible.
NGINX is now used by over 400 million websites worldwide and its ability to deliver their content quickly, reliably and securely.
NGINX is an open-source, cross-platform, multi-tenant virtualization platform used by many of the world's largest and most popular web companies. It is currently available in two commercially distributed versions, called NGINX Plus and NGINX Enterprise as well as several third-party products.
By monitoring NGINX, you can mitigate problems that develop elsewhere in your data centre
quickly, with built-in statistic monitoring making management easy.
NGINX can handle thousands of HTTP connections simultaneously, making it an ideal choice for large-scale, multi-site applications.
