Internet & Networking With financial backing from the likes of Michael Dell and other venture capitalists, open source upstart Nginx has edged out Microsoft IIS (Internet Information Server) to hold the title of second-most widely used Web server among all active websites. What's more, according to Netcraft's January 2012 Web Server Survey, Nginx over the past month has gained market share among all websites, whereas competitors Apache, Microsoft, and Google each lost share.

Wow. Good to hear. I've been mulling over the idea of switching over some parts of my site(s) to be handled by nginx. Pity that it's not more widely supported out of the box by most open source CMS packages. And pity that nginx isn't available on more budget hosts as an option to make more out of limited resources.

Get a VPS.

That's like suggesting a guy troubled by the performance of his Ford Fiesta to buy a Ferrari FF.

Er no. Have you seen VPS prices lately? Competition has caused prices to tumble. I have a 512mb ram VPS for $10/m. You can get a 384MB or 256MB ram one for even less. A VPS is an excellent alternative to shared hosting for those of us who can handle the Linux command line.

That's like suggesting to a guy troubled by the fuel consumption of his truck that he buy fuel more often.
