NGINX, Inc. is the company behind the popular open source project trusted by more than 400 million sites, offering a suite of technologies for developing and delivering modern applications. After years of hosting their own website, the NGINX marketing team wanted to partner with a managed WordPress host. Pagely’s support, expertise, and server visibility helped consolidate their web presence, moving performance concerns out of the way so they could focus on promoting their suite of products.
Since the original NGINX web server was launched in 2004, the name has become synonymous with application speed, security, and scalability. NGINX Open Source now powers 400 million websites, while its suite of products are trusted by 63% of the world’s busiest websites, including American Express, Starbucks, Bank of America, Buzzfeed, and Comcast. These days, applications are part of our everyday lives, helping us excel at work and entertaining us at home. Users expect fast performance, immediate responses, and greater features — and, of course, flawless behavior across different devices. How fast an application performs is often just as important as what it does. NGINX’s core products form the NGINX Application Platform, which includes NGINX Plus for load balancing and application delivery, the NGINX WAF for security, and NGINX Unit to run the application code – all monitored and managed by the NGINX Controller – have helped make it a platform of choice for any website or server requiring performance, reliability, and scalability.
