Default Openbds httpd

Hello maybe me question will be naive.But I would ask about specific issue.My question is about rank server web "OpenBsd httpd" between another server.

I noticed President of USA and President of Russia use the same server "nginx" another Banks or air lines use IBM system web.Some use Apache.for example stock market in New York use cloudflare server.Paypal use Apache.

What 'll be level of security between this server Openbds httpd.
High or low.And better use commercial server or open source of course I'm asking about level for security.

Assuming Trump knows what a web server is (and I doubt it), he would not personally use one. The Federal government of the US uses a wide array of tools, including web servers. The closest thing to a web server he runs is whatever Twitter us running these days.

But I think your comment answers your question for you. You identify a number of different scenarios and (according to you) these different scenarios use different solutions to solve their unique problems.

I don't know what kind of comparison you're asking for. Obviously code from the OpenBSD project is going to be secure.

Which one isn't secure.? I just ask about OpenBsd httpd would be able works as server in Bank system for example.

Probably is reason why government IT guys use "nginx".Is very secure and fast.

Both nginx and OpenBSD's httpd are secure. They do have a very different mentality and approach though.

When in doubt go with nginx, simply because that's better known and will be easier for "The Next Person" to modify and maintain.

Maybe this will explain :
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Httpd

CERN httpd is discontinued, but yes they do have something in common as well,

As far as the difference between security with httpd, and nginx:
I agreed with Carpetsmoker, they both seem to be secure, or have the
same security potential, this mostly depends on how one configures
the system, IE: A poorly configured system, and firewall, using Nginx,
could be very insecure, but the same, using httpd, if the firewall, etc is
not configured correctly it could be very insecure.
Both, in a properly configured system are very secure.

Along the lines server choices, the British site Netcraft, does regular online polling of server software, operating system. The market shifts are interesting.
