Other Servers

The following sections describe the major web servers and provide some details for the configuration of the Netscape servers. There is a chart comparing features of 125 web servers at http://webcompare.internet.com/chart.html, and there are some benchmark comparisons of web servers at http://www.spec.org/. Site rankings are from http://www.netcraft.com/survey/ or http://www.webcrawler.com/WebCrawler/Facts/Servers.html. Remember that you can always figure out what server someone is using by telnetting to port 80 of the web server machine and typing in a GET / HTTP/1.0 request.

Boa

Boa (http://www.boa.org/) is a very small and basic web server: single-threaded and single-process, but very fast. It has very little configurability, and is intended for small simple sites. It is available for free.
