What is Nginx?

Nginx, abbreviated NGIИX, is a web server that also functions as a reverse proxy, load balancer, mail proxy, and HTTP cache. Igor Sysoev created the software, which was made public in 2004. Nginx is free and open-source software distributed under the terms of the 2-clause BSD license. NGINX speeds up content and application delivery, improves security, and improves availability and scalability for the Internet’s busiest websites.
