The best alternative to Apache

  • November 06, 2019
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Able to handling thousands of massive concurrent sessions is a lightweight, fully scalable web server.
TCP/UDP/Mail proxy server and tons of other features.
What do you dislike?
If you need some special functions, like load balancing, you have to pay for the plus version.
Some features provided with the standard version, would have made the perfect webserver.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
High-performance load balancer solution to serve lot of request per seconds (by paying).
Recommendations to others considering the product:
It grants very high number of connections with a small memory footprint and a low needs of resources.

The greatest free web proxy server of all time!

  • November 06, 2019
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
You can install nginx with a single command from Linux CLI and it can be easily configured to better adapt on every type of deployment you need: from load balancer for multi-nodes environment to static html web server, from nodejs or php proxy pass to web application firewall to parse logs through your IDS/IPS system
What do you dislike?
Having a little GUI to manage hosts and listen addresses would be perfect, it's very hard to manage hundreds of hosts from CLI
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Deploy web application firewall that pass all incoming https requests to fail2ban rulesets without having to buy expensive commercial hardware

Best proxy server to pass parameters in the most secure way

  • November 05, 2019
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
You can easily create a configuration file to use nginx as a reverse proxy to pass parameters and request to your PHP process manager without having to insecurely expose on the internet-side your PHP FPM, NodeJS or FastCGI server, very useful to avoid DDoS, DoS and vulnerability scanning attacks
What do you dislike?
There's nothing I can dislike, nginx do its job in a perfect way and it's very stable and suitable for a production environment an business-critical deployment type
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I deployed nginx to mitigate and avoid Denial of service attacks I was experiencing on my web application during last months, it save me a lot of time (and money) without having to buy and configure a new intrusion prevention system

Good server to host static pages of your company website

  • October 30, 2019
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
You can create unlimited hosts in a single conf file so you can host with a single server more website and proxy the incoming requests without open different port than 80 and 443 for HTTPS.
Is also good to hide real ip address of the listening web server
What do you dislike?
No support or example templates in conf file, especially when you install and you are trying to configure it on Linux based OS
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Deploy multiple web server for different companies and their distributed products / services with a single server through virtual hosts configuration of nginx and proxy pass function

The web server with no opponents

  • October 29, 2019
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Nginx is a proxy that can be configured as web server to serve static pages or pass requests to another CGI.
It can be configured in a single configuration file without knowing Linux and bash script.
What do you dislike?
Not well documented on how to setup file permissions to serve some type of request or static file
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
When serving static pages it can handles a huge amount of requests per second, is very hard to perform a DDOS attack, this save my company website

NGINX R12

  • October 02, 2019
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Shedding their startup skin, the team members behind the wildly popular NGINX web server and delivery platform continue to mature and deliver high-performing and reliable websites and applications. Now with the structure and resources befitting an industry-leader, the company recently released the newest version of its enterprise-grade product, NGINX Plus R12.
What do you dislike?
The recommended way seems to be to do this using docker & kubernetes but getting the resources for even a small cluster is not cheap and setting it up just for better code reviews for a small portion of the code is not something I wanted to do.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
nginx cache


    Genesis C.

Load balancing and use of few server resources.

  • September 25, 2019
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
1) I mainly like its compatibility with Linux and Windows, to work on any stable platform.

2) The execution is more optimized, faster because I decide that it is loaded to avoid wasting time in processes.

3) Configuration is easier than Apache Server, web server load balancing and proxy server response with static content.
What do you dislike?
The configuration at the beginning is difficult due to the change of language and adaptation to the new server.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
The main thing is the load balancing of several web servers, correct use of the proxy to improve traffic on our network.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
This system is easier to install and start up than other systems, for example Apache Server. Ngixn is cross-platform, open source with a trial version for you to use all the functions and settings for 30 days before paying, I recommend you try it before buying so you can compare it with other systems.
