I use PHP-FPM in this tutorial instead of Lighttpd's spawn-fcgi.

Using mod_spdy With Apache2 On Ubuntu 12.10

Using mod_spdy With Apache2 On Ubuntu 12.10

SPDY (pronounced "SPeeDY") is a new networking protocol whose goal is to speed up the web. It is Google's alternative to the HTTP protocol and a candidate for HTTP/2.0. SPDY augments HTTP with several speed-related features such as stream multiplexing and header compression. To use SPDY, you need a web server and a browser (like Google Chrome and upcoming versions of Firefox) that both support SPDY. mod_spdy is an open-source Apache module that adds support for the SPDY protocol to the Apache HTTPD server. This tutorial explains how to use mod_spdy with Apache2 on Ubuntu 12.10.

Rate Limiting With nginx

Rate Limiting With nginx

This article explains how to use the nginx HttpLimitReqModule to limit the number of requests for a given session.

With the HttpLimitReqModule you can define a rate limit, and if a visitor exceeds this rate, he will get a 503 error.
