How do servers and clients work?


What are servers and clients and how do they work?

A server is software or hardware that serves a specific service to its clients, and allows multiple computers to access it. A client is a single computer that connects to a server to access a specific service.

For example, when you visit a website, you computer is the client that sends a request to the server to send a copy of the website back to the client.
