  1. Server

    A server is a system that responds to requests across a computer network to provide, or help to provide, a network service. Servers can be run on a dedicated computer, which is also often referred to as "the server", but many networked computers are capable of hosting servers. In many cases, a computer can provide several services and have several servers running. Servers operate within a client-server architecture, servers are computer programs running to serve the requests of other programs, the clients. Thus, the server performs some task on behalf of clients. The clients typically connect to the server through the network but may run on the same computer. In the context of Internet Protocol networking, a server is a program that operates as a socket listener. Servers often provide essential services across a network, either to private users inside a large organization or to public users via the Internet. Typical computing servers are database server, file server, mail server, print server, web server, gaming server, application server, or some other kind of server. Numerous systems use this client / server networking model including Web sites and email services. An alternative model, peer-to-peer networking enables all computers to act as either a server or client as needed.

Examples of server in a Sentence

  1. Cheryl Mills:

    When you look at the poll numbers of Hilary Clinton -- they've dropped. Unfavorable is pretty high because people say they don't trust her, they don't trust her because what they found out about the server and everything else. Would you ever have found that out had you not gathered the information from Benghazi Select Committee? So if we really want to be able to show what this Planned Parenthood has done ... have the select committee get all the information, all the hearings. Win the argument to win the vote.

  3. Jan Visser:

    This has nothing to do with our existing central heating installation which stayed intact, this server heater is an entirely individual heating device, of course, if it gives good enough warmth, you can use less of your existing central heating and there is the chance for home owner to pay less bills.

  4. Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro:

    I believe that Secretary Clinton has said, has acknowledged that that was not the best way to handle her emails back then ... and has turned over all of the information and the emails and documents and now the server, folks need to understand that she did not handle classified information that was classified at that the time. It may have become classified later, but it was not classified that way at the time.
