Web Server or the web server can refer to either hardware or software that provides access to users through the communication protocol HTTP or HTTPS over the files contained on a web site within the service to users using a particular application such as a web browser.
The most common use is to put the web server web site, but in practice its use expanded as a place peyimpanan data or to execute a number of business-class applications.
The definition of the
The primary function of a web server is to transfer files at the request of users through predetermined communication protocol. Due to a web page may consist of text files, pictures, video, and other web server utilization also serves to transfer the entire aspect of filings with securities in a related web page; including text, images, video, or other.
Users, usually through an application such as a web browser, the user requests a service over a file or web page on a web server, then the server as the Service Manager will respond by sending the feedback page and supporting files that are needed, or reject the request if the requested page is not available.
While this is generally a web server has been equipped with machine language translator script that allows a web server provides services for dynamic websites by leveraging additional libraries such as PHP, ASP.
The utilization of the current web server is not limited only to the publication of the web site in the World Wide Web, the web server in practice many are also used in other hardware devices-such as printers, routers, web cameras that provides access to the http service in the local network that are intended to provide device management as well as facilitate a review of the hardware.
In 1989, Tim Berners-Lee put forth on his company, CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) is a project that aims to facilitate information exchange between researchers using the system while. As a result over the implementation of the project, in 1990 Berners-Lee wrote two computer programmes:
a browser called WorldWideWeb as;
the world's first web server, later known as CERN httpd, which ran on NeXTSTEP operating system.
From 1991 to 1994, simplicity and effectiveness over the technology used to visit as well as Exchange data via the World Wide Web makes both of these applications are adopted on a number of operating systems to be used by more individuals, or groups. Initially, the research organization was then developed and used in the higher education environment, and ultimately used in the business industry.
In 1994, Tim Berners-Lee decided to standardize the Organization World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to arrange for further developments over the other related technologies (HTTP, HTML, and others) through the process of standardization.
