About the author
I’m Soumik Ghosh, a 20 year old student from Kolkata, India. I’m better known as Ellimist in the online communities I participate in. I started writing about Nginx on my personal blog, (which, sadly, isn’t updated anymore) before I branched off to create this site. Comments and/or questions are welcome.
Nginx is a free, open-source, high-performance HTTP server and reverse proxy, as well as an IMAP/POP3 proxy server. Igor Sysoev started development of Nginx in 2002, with the first public release in 2004. Nginx now hosts nearly 12.18% (22.2M) of all domains worldwide.
Nginx is known for its high performance, stability, rich feature set, simple configuration, and low resource consumption.
