Nginx Proxy Manager

     

I needed a solution that would allow me to have multiple servers behind a single firewall for my home lab. After looking at many paid solutions I found this open-source project that fit the bill, NGINX Proxy Manager (link).

The NGINX Proxy Manager is an all-in-one solution that has an easy-to-use UI, Let’s Encrypt SSL support, and built-in Docker FTW.

The project comes as a pre-built docker image that enables you to easily forward to your websites running at home or otherwise, including free SSL, without having to know too much about Nginx or Letsencrypt.

Features

  • Beautiful and Secure Admin Interface based on Tabler
  • Easily create forwarding domains, redirections, streams, and 404 hosts without knowing anything about Nginx
  • Free SSL using Let’s Encrypt or provide your own custom SSL certificates
  • Access Lists and basic HTTP Authentication for your hosts
  • Advanced Nginx configuration available for super users
  • User management, permissions, and audit log
