Nginx [pronounced “engine x”] is an HTTP and reverse proxy server, a mail proxy server, and a generic TCP/UDP proxy server. As of September 2016, NGINX was running over 30% of all web servers worldwide.
Nginx can be deployed to serve dynamic HTTP content on the network using FastCGI, SCGI handlers for scripts, and it can serve as a software load balancer. Nginx uses an asynchronous event-driven approach to handling requests. Nginx’s modular event-driven architecture can provide more predictable performance under high loads.
QuikSite uses NGINX as a reverse proxy web server to Apache. This increases performance of handling dynamic and static web content, load balancing, compression, and caching..
