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

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.

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

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.

Very powerful web server

  • April 26, 2019
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
I have been really satisfied with how simple nginx is to install and administer, even only with a cli. It may be simple, but it is that simplicity that makes it so powerful and that makes it able to do everything on the web
What do you dislike?
at first, I tried to use it like apache. that was the hardest. so many people try to use it like apache. it would be good if nginx had some sort of built-in assistant to make sure it is used properly and up to standards.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
it is mostly my go-to now when I have to do something web-related on a server.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
it's like English. but stop thinking that it's like apache. it's not. we're not using xml, and we can do so much more than websites with nginx.

Load balancing web applications that would crash on their own.
