Q3. What do you understand by the Web server?
Ans. A Web server is a computer or a group of computers that stores Web documents. In other words, a Web server can be defined as a package or container that contains a huge amount of information.
When a user sends a request for some information to a Web server, the requested information is searched on the Web server, and sent back to the computer.
Whenever a user sends a request to the Web server for a Web page
and receive a response in the form of the requested Web page, the communication takes place with the help of the HTTP protocol. HTTP is used to access Web pages from a Web server over the Internet.
