All Ask Computer and Internet Glossary

Server

A server is the computer system that "serves" information to the requests from browsers on the Internet, or to other computers on a network. Servers are usually maintained by a server administrator and are often high-performance systems. Servers are connected to The Internet and to each other by a common protocol or language, known as TCP/IP.
