Web Server And Its Role


A web server is simply a computer program that creates access to specific web pages as they are requested. The machine the program runs on is also known as a server. When you enter an address into any internet browser, it sends a request to the World Wide Web asking to view the web page found at that address. The web server is the program or machine that responds to that request and delivers the requested page content to the user. This series of activities are usually completed in a matter of seconds.

A single web server can support numerous websites, or a single website can be hosted on several linked or mirrored web servers. It is technologically possible to convert any computer into a Web server by installing the appropriate server software and connecting the machine to the Internet.

Web servers are also capable of handling data requests for other protocols such as SMTP for email, or FTP for file transfer and storage. Web servers are engineered to respond to web page requests at super speeds and that is the underlying force that keeps the World Wide Web up and running at high efficiency and without any major glitches most of the time.
