Proxy mode setups work very well and are used in many hosting solutions (we use a Nginx proxy setup for X-Cart on our server & it runs perfectly).
We're only making this post because an official release, of a 100% Nginx only version of X-Cart 5.4.* (or any previous releases) has never happened.
It's pretty important then, that no unintended
'illusion' that it has, is made. Even if, that's by association
e.g. to hosting setups
Have a read of THIS
old thread; page 3 & Post #23 (!) first, then THIS
public beta release thread; Post #22 - point d) & Post #23 just for starters...
It's been a half-hearted approach (so far) to providing an Nginx only version of X-Cart
and so X-Cart is (currently) still very much Apache focused.
However, this ^^ doesn't effect what to look for from a hosting provider, which was the basis of the main question from @EvagorasG to be fair!
