Brief Introduction About Apache
To describe Apache HTTP Server, I prefare to use exact phrases from it’s Wikipedia page:
The Apache HTTP Server, commonly referred to as Apache (/əˈpætʃiː/), is web server software notable for playing a key role in the initial growth of the World Wide Web.
Apache was the first viable alternative to the Netscape Communications Corporation web server (currently named Oracle iPlanet Web Server)
As of March 2012 Apache was estimated to serve 57.46% of all active websites and 65.24% of the top servers across all domains.
Apache supports a variety of features, many implemented as compiled modules which extend the core functionality.
Some common language interfaces support Perl, Python, Tcl, and PHP.
Although the main design goal of Apache is not to be the “fastest” web server, Apache does have performance similar to other “high-performance” web servers.
So it would be a good choice to use Apache for your server.
