A server is a computer program or device that provides a service to another computer program and its user, also known as the client. In a data center, the physical computer that a server program runs on is also frequently referred to as a server. That machine may be a dedicated server or it may be used for other purposes as well.
Few types of servers
Servers are often categorized in terms of their purpose. A few examples of the types of servers available are:
Web Server is a computer program that serves requested HTML pages or files. In this case, a Web browser acts as the client.
