I'm curious as to why you asked this as opposed to just searching...?

Anyhoo,

A Web server is a program that, using the client/server model and the World Wide Web's Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), serves the files that form Web pages to Web users (whose computers contain HTTP clients that forward their requests). ...basically a computer the serves web pages! Hence, Web Server
