This is not sound advice for a newbie, which the OP seems to be. Nginx
is in fact leap years ahead of Apache and lesser fauna in the web
server biosphere, but you must know how to configure it. Otherwise
you're setting yourself up for a lot of pain, being p0wned with no
mercy is highly probable.

For a newbie stick with Apache. It holds your hand. Alternatively go
to the Nginx group on g.d.o and see what's discussed there. Don't
venture to setup a site in the wild while you don't have some
understanding of the config.
