Abyss Free Web Server
For starters who find IIS to be a bit daunting web server to configure, I wanted to share some information on a webserver which I found while surfing the web. It is called Abyss Web Server from Aprelium Technologies. You can download it from here. There are lot of good features with respect to Abyss webserver which I found while playing around it:
- Lower Memory Footprint
- Memory consumption is pretty low.
- Smaller download
- ASP.NET Support
- Browser-based Administration Tool
- Installation does not require any administrator privileges unless you opt for Windows service mode installation or 'Start with Windows'.
- Support for ISAPI, FASTCGI and PHP applications
- Support for Classic ASP via a third party ASP tool
- Elegant Browser based administration similar to Plesk/CPanel interface.
- Big websites can go for Premium editions but free edition itself is neat and great.
