    "I needed a good web server to host my website. I found Nginx. This is just what I needed. Nginx is an HTTP and reverse proxy server, among other things, so it fills many niches. It works amazingly well and is incredibly fast and efficient. I love how easy it is to use, too. I highly recommend Nginx for your web server needs."

    "I have just recently begun to use LiteSpeed and I can say, without hesitation, that it not only gets the job done, but it's actually far easier than Apache that I was using previously. It's compatible with all the control panels that were originally written for Apache, so there's no worries about not having enough options because of switching. Plus, you can lease LiteSpeed for as little as $14 a month, or outright by it for $249! It's a great alternative to try if you're looking for something other than Apache!"
