More About Servers

When you type a URL into an address bar, your browser sends a request to the server that stores the website you want to visit. The server then sends the requested web page back to your browser, which displays it on your screen.

Web servers can be located anywhere in the world, and they’re often run by large companies or governments. However, anyone can operate a server, even from their home computer.

The term “server” can also refer to the software that runs on a server. Popular examples include Apache and NGINX.
