lighttpd (pronounced "lighty") is a web server designed to be secure, fast, standards-compliant, and flexible while being optimized for speed-critical environments.
lighttpd supports load-balancing FastCGI, SCGI and HTTP proxy, SSL and TLS support via OpenSSL, authentication against an LDAP server, flexible virtual hosting, HTTP compression und much more.
It is designed very light-weight (less than 1 MB).
Apache, is a web server notable for playing a key role in the initial growth of the World Wide Web and in 2009 became the first web server to surpass the 100 million web site milestone. Apache was the first viable alternative to the Netscape Communications Corporation web server, and has since evolved to rival other Unix-based web servers in terms of functionality and performance. The majority of all web servers using Apache are Linux web servers.
Apache is developed and maintained by an open community of developers under the auspices of the Apache Software Foundation.
Nanoweb is an HTTP server written in PHP, designed to be small, secure, and extensible.
A small fast HTTP library and server that runs Rails, Camping, Nitro and Iowa apps.
WEBrick is a Ruby library providing simple HTTP web server services.
Thin is a Ruby web server that glues together 3 of the best Ruby libraries in web history:
* the Mongrel parser, the root of Mongrel speed and security
* Event Machine, a network I/O library with extremely high scalability, performance and stability
* Rack, a minimal interface between webservers and Ruby frameworks
Which makes it, with all humility, the most secure, stable, fast and extensible Ruby web server bundled in an easy to use gem for your own pleasure.
webfs is a simple HTTP server for mostly static content. You can use it to serve the content of a FTP server via HTTP for example. It is also nice to export some files the quick way by starting a HTTP server in a few seconds, without editing some config file first.
It uses sendfile() and knows how to use sendfile on linux and FreeBSD. Adding other systems should'nt be difficuilt. There is some sendfile emulation code which uses read()+write() and a userland bounce buffer, this allows to compile and use webfs on systems without sendfile() too.
Recent versions also got limited CGI support (GET requests only) and optional SSL support.
You shouldn't use versions older than 1.20 because of recent security fixes.
python -m SimpleHTTPServer
nginx [engine x] is a HTTP and reverse proxy server, as well as a mail proxy server written by Igor Sysoev. It has been running for more than five years on many heavily loaded Russian sites including Rambler (RamblerMedia.com).
Basic HTTP server features
Serving static and index files, autoindexing; open file descriptor cache;
Accelerated reverse proxying with caching; simple load balancing and fault tolerance;
Accelerated support with caching of FastCGI, uwsgi, SCGI, and memcached servers; simple load balancing and fault tolerance;
Modular architecture. Filters include gzipping, byte ranges, chunked responses, XSLT, SSI, and image transformation filter. Multiple SSI inclusions within a single page can be processed in parallel if they are handled by proxied or FastCGI/uwsgi/SCGI servers;
SSL and TLS SNI support.
Cherokee is a flexible, very fast, lightweight Web server. It is implemented entirely in C, and has no dependencies beyond a standard C library. It is embeddable and extensible with plug-ins. It supports on-the-fly configuration by reading files or strings, TLS/SSL (via GNUTLS or OpenSSL), virtual hosts, authentication, cache friendly features, PHP, custom error management, and much more.
Mongrel2 is an application, language, and network architecture agnostic web server that focuses on web applications using modern browser technologies.
Hiawatha, a secure and advanced webserver
TinyWeb is an extremely small (executable file size is 53K), simple (no configuration other than through the command line) and fast (consumes a minimum of system resources) Win32 daemon for regular (TCP/http) and secure (SSL/TLS/https) web-servers.
Tornado is an open source version of the scalable, non-blocking web server. The framework is distinct from most mainstream web server frameworks (and certainly most Python frameworks) because it is non-blocking and reasonably fast. Because it is non-blocking and uses epoll, it can handle thousands of simultaneous standing connections, which means it is ideal for real-time web services.
Need to share some files with your colleagues or setup basic html website on your machine? It's very simple with Simple HTTP Server. Just click 'Start server' and choose a folder to share. The url already in your clipboard.
Ever wanted to set up a webserver so that you could have your friends check out a new page you're working on? Or maybe you'd just like to play around with HTML, and need to have a local webserver to get a good feel... Whichever the case, you've probably discovered that most of the webservers out there are, how should I put this, interface challenged. Sure, you can run Apache on your machine, but only after a couple hours hacking on cryptic text files, but now there's a better option...
Introducing AnalogX SimpleServer:WWW, the first in a series of simple to use yet powerful servers! This webserver is SO easy to use, about the only thing you need to know how to do is drag and drop files, then just click on the 'Start' button, and your webserver is up and running, serving your pages to the world! Best of all, SimpleServer minimizes to the system tray, so it doesn't take up valuable screen space when you're not working with it.
SimpleServer:WWW supports MIME file typing, CGI, common log format, and multi-hosting, just to name a few! If you've always wanted a compact, easy to use, versatile webserver, then your prayers have been answered!
Fast web server for high performance C++ web applications
Wt (pronounced as witty) is a C++ library for developing web applications.
The library comes with an application server that acts as a stand-alone Http(s)/WebSocket server or integrates through FastCGI with other web servers.
LiteSpeed Web Server (LSWS) is a high-performance Apache drop-in replacement. LSWS is the 4th most popular web server on the internet and the #1 commercial web server. Upgrading your web server to LiteSpeed Web Server will improve your performance and lower operating costs
