Cons to using stand alone Nginx for web hosting customers?


New member
I'm going to be offering web hosting via Zesle. From what i've read Nginx is faster for web serving, but are there cons to using it?
The only thing i've read so far is that you can't use .htaccess files.
Are there other cons to using Nginx, from the point of view of web hosting customers?

Is it a good idea or bad idea to not use apache?

Thanks for the tips,

Yes, NGINX offers improved performance compared to Apache. However, I recommend using a hybrid approach with NGINX in front of Apache. This way, you can benefit from .htaccess functionality while still leveraging the performance advantages of NGINX.
