Nginx (pronounced Ã¢â¬Åengine xÃ¢â¬Â) is a free, open-source, high-performance HTTP server and reverse proxy, as well
as an IMAP/POP3 proxy server. Written by Igor Sysoev in 2005, Nginx now hosts between 1% and 4% of all domains
worldwide. Although still in beta, Nginx is known for its stability, rich feature set, simple configuration,
and low resource consumption.
