Creating Web Sites
Setting Up Your Own Internet Server-
- An Internet server, often called a web server, stores information that can be accessed by other computers connected to the Internet. All of the data that's available on every website is stored on various servers around the world. This data is retrieved and downloaded by personal computers that visit the site, allowing users to see it. Web servers can also used as gateways that allow other computers to connect to the Internet. There is a wide range of complexity in web servers. It's possible to set up a simple one right at home using a personal computer." (Mimosa Systems)
