    I haven't used nginx myself, is it similar to a CDN service?

    Not a lot to say about it. Just like any other server HTTP out there like LiteSpeed, Lighttpd, and Apache. The real only difference is how the .htaccess works (in this case it's a lot harder to use.) I have only used it once and I have to say you would really need to be looking to cut costs down if your going to use this.
