A server, or more specifically a network server, is a computer that processes requests and delivers data to other clients (basically other computers) over a local network or the Internet. Many companies have servers used for delivering data over their local network. However, as a hosting company, Fibernet specializes in providing data over the Internet.
Depending on a user’s hosting plan, the customer is assigned either a portion of a server or an entire server. The user can then upload their website information to that server, generally using FTP, and the server distributes the information via the Internet.
