Server

From Matisse Enzer :

A computer, or a software package, that provides a specific kind of service to client software running on other computers.

The term can refer to a particular piece of software, such as a WWW , or to the machine on which the software is running, e.g. “Our mail is down today, that’s why e-mail isn’t getting out.”

A single server machine can (and often does) have several different server software packages running on it, thus providing many different servers to clients on the . Sometimes server software is designed so that additional capabilities can be added to the main program by adding small programs known as servlets.
