cPnginx is a cPanel plugin that allows you to use the faster Nginx server over cPanel’s default of Apache. Nginx is well known for its high performance, stability, rich feature set, simple configuration, and low resource consumption.
Nginx is unique in that it uses an asynchronous event-driven architecture. This is much more scalable than the traditional server model of using threads to handle requests. This is especially helpful in the area of memory consumption, known to be a problem with traditional server platforms like Apache.
