Web Servers

A web server is a program that interprets HTTP requests and delivers the appropriate web page in a form that your browser can understand. Many examples are available, most running under either UNIX/Linux operating systems or under some version of Microsoft Windows.

The term web server is often used in popular speech to refer to both the web server programsuch as Apacheand the computer on which it runs.

Perhaps the best-known server application is the Apache Web Server from the Apache Software Foundation (, an open source project used to serve millions of websites around the world.
