Hello Readers, I am Ishika Doshi from Techwebx.com
We have quite a knowledge about the Internet works on the connection of wires. There are many many wires interconnect and form a chain through which net is passed.
So the question might be evident that where all these wires go and connect at the end.
These all wires connect to the server. What is the server? How is it used? All the answers to these questions are going to be solved in this blog.
What is Server?
Server is basically the object which serves you. It can be your computer your Wi-Fi or your mobile phone from which you are might be reading this blog right now.
Suppose if you are away from your friend, and you want to talk to him, you have internet, but you don’t have any apps or websites using which you can speak to him.
How old you have a conversation with each other than. You need something through which you can connect with your friend. That connection on the internet is known as Server. Share the server can be the app through which you can talk to your friend or a website which can make your communication possible.
Now your server can be hardware as well as software.
That means even you can create a server to help others who come in contact with your server which can be in your phone or your computer.
If you search anything on Google, Google collects the information from the server and send it on your screen. And in the same way, the other apps or sites we can say works. In other terms, all our standard computers, divided into two terms, Client and Server. The one who gives information is Server, and the one who gets the information is Client. Both works with their importance.
What happens when Server is Down?
The server works upon the Mbps. For example if suppose I have a website connection with the server which have 20 Mbps capacity. Now if one or two-person visit my website, then my server can easily give them all the information they need like, my server will quickly open my website in front of them download my website in a fraction of seconds. Which will make it is easy for the visitors to take a moment and spend your time on my website. But if suppose rather than two-person, there are two hundred or two thousand visitors at the same time on my website. During that particular time, my server has not such capacity to serve everybody with the same speed at a time. What will happen here is, my server will one by one go on downloading my website to a visitor once done with the first one to go to the second then third and then fourth. In this way, my server will work slowly what we say in other terms is server is down.
Can we make server at home?
Yes, we can make our personal server at our home. But to make this we need 24 into 7 electricity connection and the best internet connection, which is quite impossible. Because if my internet goes down for the electricity goes down then at the same time my website will not be able to work. The reason behind this is just that if I want to upload my website, then the visitor won’t be able to download the website. By upload, I mean that whenever any visitor visits my website at the same time, I have to be on to make them view my site. But if I face any problem with electricity or internet, I would lose my customer or my visitor.
Hence there are many spot places where the companies have built a 24/7 into electricity connection with a backup source for electricity and the best internet service. So, you can use that server and host a website on it which is also known as website hosting in other terms.
Now the question is How Google has the best server because Googles gets more traffic at a time.
The simple answer to the question is Cloud Hosting. This is a process in which Google doesn’t have one server, but they have many servers in a different location. So whenever you search for anything on Google, you get the information from the nearby server and not from the far one.
That’s done for this blog. I am guessing that it was easy for you to understand in a better way.
Thank you so much for reading so far.
