Programming the web


1.4 Web Servers

A web server is a computer program that delivers (serves) content, such as web pages,
using the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), over the World Wide Web. The term web
server can also refer to the computer or virtual machine running the program. In large
commercial deployments, a server computer running a web server can be rack-mounted
with other servers to operate a web farm.
