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.


  • 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
