In simple words, Server is a centralized computer which answers all the queries coming from the other computers (clients).

It is like a request response. Client computers request for a server regarding the particular information. When server receives the request – it looks for that information and sends it back to client as a response.

There are different types of servers.

 

  1. File Server – responsible for managing all the files over the network and make sure these files accessible to the client computers whenever required.

 

  1. Print Server – It is used to manage all the print jobs of the client computers over the network.

 

  1. Web Server – It works with Hypertext Transfer Protocol (http ://) on the basis of request response. When the client computer asks for information related to website say http://www.gmail.com, the server looks for the webpage and sends back the response as a homepage of the website.

 

Application Server – At organization level, it stores and manages the information of an organization- its users, databases and business application of that organization.
