A web server is a program that, that using the client/server model and the World Wide Web’s hypertext transfer protocol (HTTP), serves the files that form web pages to web users whose computer contain HTTP clients that forward their requests. Every computer on the internet that contains a web site must have a web server program. Two leading Web servers are Apache , the most widely-installed Web server, and Microsoft's Internet Information Server. Web servers often come as part of a longer package of internet and internet related programs for serving email, downloading requests for FTP files, and building and publishing web pages.

A Web server is a system that delivers content or services to end users over the Internet. A Web server consists of a physical server, server operating system (OS) and software used to facilitate HTTP communication.

A Web server is also known as an Internet server. In terms of software, there have been literally hundreds of Web servers over the years, but Apache and Microsoft's IIS have emerged as two of the most popular systems.

A web server is a system that serves the web pages (include content, images, etc.) to a web browser. A web server comprises the physical server, server system software (Apache or Microsoft’s IIS or other) and server OS (Windows or Linux or other).

A web browser communicates with the web server via HTTP. Whenever a web browser sends an HTTP request to a web server, the web server responds with HTML webpages and some additional information like java applets and others.

The web servers are the basic blocks on which a web hosting company (https://www.znetlive.com) works. You can find more by reading How Does Web Hosting Works?

Basically webservers are used to host websites. If you have a website to publish you need to have a webserver.

A web server is an information technology that processes requests via HTTP, the basic network protocol used to distribute information on the World Wide Web. The term can refer either to the entire computer system, an appliance, or specifically to the software that accepts and supervises the HTTP requests.
