Nowadays people can have dillema about which web server they should use on their websites.

The most popular web servers are Apache and NGINX.
But which one is the best and why? Please, share your opinions and experiences.

I heard that NGINX is 300% faster than Apache.

Dedi = Dedicated Server

I think he was referring to your logic, not your choice of words.
What you're running on is irrelevant to what web-server you should choose.

You should never choose Apache, if you have the freedom to use lighttpd, NGINX or LiteSpeed. People choose Apache because of what it offers, you can add modules whenever you want and you get the nice htaccess implementation. NGINX doesn't offer any of these,but it's much faster than Apache and is better for static delivery and compression. LiteSpeed is pretty much NGINX and Apache together but on steroids. It comes at a price, and that's because it's designed for people who can pay a bit for these types of things.
Somewhat like how NVIDIA charge so much for QUADRO when they're not too far from GeForce standards, because people who would normally buy these things can afford it.


The best in my opinion would be LiteSpeed, with NGINX coming up 2nd. However, that doesn't mean the rest are shit. With a good config, the others are pretty snappy too. It all depends on how easy you want it to be. :3
