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

    Web servers often come as part of a larger package of Internet- and intranet-related programs for serving email, downloading requests for File Transfer Protocol (FTP) files, and building and publishing Web pages. Considerations in choosing a Web server include how well it works with the operating system and other servers, its ability to handle server-side programming, security characteristics, and the particular publishing, search engine and site building tools that come with it.

    Web Server: The computer on which the Web server software is installed, sometimes called the Web Server itself. All Web Servers understand and run * .htm and * .html files, but each Web Server serves specific file types such as Microsoft's IIS for * .asp, * .aspx. ..; Apache for * .php ...; Sun Java System Web Server of SUN for * php ...

    A Web server is a high-speed, high-capacity server used to store information as a data bank, containing Web sites that have been designed with other relevant information. (Scripts, programs, and multimedia files)

    The Web Server is capable of sending Web sites through the Internet (or Intranet) environment via the HTTP protocol - a protocol designed to send files to the Web browser, and other protocols.

    All Web Servers have either an IP Address or a Domain Name. Suppose that when you type in the Address bar on your browser a line abc.com then hit enter you will send a request to a server whose Domain Name is abc.com. This server will find the web page named index.htm and send it to your browser.

    Any computer can become a Web Server by installing it on a Server Software program and then connecting to the Internet.
