Compact, easy to use and fully compliant to standards
Abyss Web Server is a compact web server available for Windows, MacOS X, Linux and FreeBSD operating systems.
Low requirements for great performance
Abyss Web Server does not require huge memory or excessive computing power to run. That's why it can be used without problems even on small or out-dated systems. It performs at least as well as the common web servers available on the market.
An intuitive web management interface called the console makes the web server configuration as easy as browsing a web site. No need to edit configuration files, the console helps you setting the server parameters in an effortless manner and can be accessed from a local or a remote computer. It is available in many languages such as English, French, Arabic, Chinese, and Spanish.
Fault-tolerant and robust
Abyss Web Server is based on the APX architecture. APX (which stands for Anti-crash Protection eXtension) was created, here at Aprelium, to make the server crash-proof. If it happens that the software causes a critical error and crashes (which is by the way very improbable), a report will be generated if possible and the server is automatically restarted. The downtime in such a case won't exceed 1 second!
Security is the #1 priority in Abyss Web Server. In addition to its advanced URL decoding engine which rejects malicious and suspicious requests, it features an efficient anti-hacking system which detects at an early stage hacking attempts or denial of service attacks and bans dynamically their originating IP addresses.
It is also equipped with an anti-leeching system to automatically prevent other web sites from directly linking to your images or files.
Abyss Web Server supports the standard eXtended Server Side Includes directives to help you create dynamic HTML pages with the least effort and without requiring the use of a scripting language. Advanced directives such as #if, #elif, #else, #endif, and #set are available to enable flow control as well as variables setting and substitution constructs.
On-the-fly HTTP compression
Abyss Web Server supports the automatic compression of its responses when it dialogs with modern browsers which understand
