WHAT IS A SERVER



A Server is a computer That serves information to other computers. These computers 

called clients, can connect to a server through either a local area network.
. A web server serves Web pages to computers that connect to it. It also can 
parse scripting languages such as PHP, ASP, and JSP. A mail server stores users' e-mail 
accounts and sends and receives e-mail messages. For example, when you send an e-mail 
to a friend, the message is sent by a mail server, using the SMTP protocol. A file server is a 
computer that stores files that can be accessed by other computers. File servers are often 
used within local networks and typically require a password or some kind of authentication 
to connect to it.

These are a few examples of some common servers, but several other types of servers 

exist. Just about any computer can be used as a server if the necessary server software is 

installed on it. While servers typically don't need a lot of processing power, lots of RAM and 

fast hard drives are helpful for dealing with heavy traffic to and from the server.
