What do you like best?
Nginx is very easy to use, Nginx is very easy to configure and you config a very complex setup in just a few hours.
What do you dislike?
Nothing really, but if I have to, my main comment would be it is much harder to compile nginx from scratch compared to Apache specially on custom OSs.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Serving web applications, I can configure very complicated setup by just a few commands. Also it is very issue to add support for ssl.

The reverse proxy product that does everything you need

  • December 17, 2020
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
The best feature of nginx is its reliability and simplicity. It's very easy to start - when it start it installs the default "pure html" website. It's compatible with all web-add-on on the market. And its free version is capable to provide all that developer needs. It forces developer to use best practices and do not leave major vulnerabilities.

Nginx is free and it was my choice to host all our websites. It has a huge popularity, so any question on Stack Overflow is answered immediately.
What do you dislike?
It's documentation is not logically structured and contains "long sentences that does have much sense". It's probably was automatically translated from Russian language.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Website hosting, the major advantage that it has anything the major web-developer needs, generate logs that can be analyzed by almost all log-analytical system.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Just try to use nginx especially with nodejs or simple html websites. Use letsencrypt to automatically generate SSL certificate

Best Web Server i have used

  • November 13, 2020
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
One main advantage of Nginx over a web server like Apache is that Nginx does not set up a new process for each web request but rather the default configuration is to have one worker process per CPU. Nginx can also be used in various of scenarios like:

It can act as a reverse proxy server for TCP, UDP, HTTP, HTTPS, SMTP, POP3, and IMAP protocols
It can act as a load balancer and an HTTP cache
It is very lightweight hence requires fewer resources / memory
Able to handle 10k+ simultaneous connections with a low memory footprint
What do you dislike?
Less community support and documentation than other web servers like Apache, but probably more than enough depending on your expertise and use case. Not as many modules / extensions as Apache. Could be difficult to understand how to configure initially, but once you get the hang of it its pretty simple to use.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We run multiple websites using nginx. Including websites serving static contents like Angular and also dyanmic content like Ruby on Rails Projects. The benifits i have realised are monetory as nginx can be used on small configurations like 1gb ram and 1 cpu on VM's on azure/aws and works flawlessly for websites built using angular which are very common these days
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Go for it. Its a very lightwieght web server with miniminum needs for resources. Very usefull for deploying websites for small companies/startups on a small VM on aws/azure works even with 1 cpu and 1 gb ram
