What do web browsers browse? Web Servers! Microsoft's Internet Information server (shown here) is a popular one. So is Apache.
Web Servers are just software programs that manage files for display on the web. Other programs might exist between the web server and the database that make web pages more powerful and dynamic.

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Web Servers:
Web server is specilized softare-that responds to client request(typically from a Web browser) by providing resources such as XHTML documents. For examples, when users enter a Uniform Resource Locator(URL) address, such as www.google.com, into a Web browser, thry are requesting a specific document from a Wrb server. The Web server maps the URL to a resource on the server and returns the requested resource to the client. During this interaction the web server and the client communicate using the platform independent Hypertext Transfer Protocol, a protocol for transferring requests and files over the internet(i.e., between web servers and web browsers).
