Web servers are the computers that deliver Web pages. Each Web server has an IP address and possibly a domain name.

For example, if you enter the URL - "http://www.xyz.com/index.html" in your browser, this sends a request to the Web server whose domain name is "xyz.com". The server then fetches the page named index.html and sends it to your browser.

For making a Web server, you can use any computer and just install the server software and connect the machine to the Internet. Now-a-days, many Web server software applications are available on internet,that includes public domain software from NCSA and Apache, and even the commercial packages from Microsoft, Netscape and others.
