comparison between webserver, web client and web browser.

Friends ,here in this post I will be giving information about comparison between web server, web browser and web client. However let me refresh your memory about how we started. My goal is teaching you to develop a blog following the important steps . I started telling you all How to open a blog post and start blogging online. Here I emphasized the purpose or need for a blog. I have mentioned unless the purpose is defined there is no meaning in continuing. Once your purpose is known, research on this idea has to be done.

how keywords are selected

While doing research key words are tracked. The keywords are checked for competition in Keyword tool planner. Even Google trends gives region wise or country wise competition for these key words.The key word which has high competition is then used in the blog post both in head lines and as key phrase. Now in this post my key phrase is comparison between webserver, web client and web browser. I checked Google trends for this. I found this phrase has low competition . However web server has high competition than the other two terms.

How to choose domain names

Thereafter I proceeded to choosing domain name. It is very important that the domain name is about the niche you have decided. I also gave you details about what not to include while choosing domain names. I gave you names of some sites wherein you will get domain names.

what are the website types and purposes.

I gave you information about types of website depending on purpose. I also gave you difference between blogs and website.

How to build your website whether web builder or cpanel hosting

After this I wanted to give information about web hosting providers to host your website. Before that I tried giving you details about the two methods of hosting your website, that is web builder & c panel. I gave you the advantages & disadvantages of both the methodologies. I also gave you information about what to avoid while building your own website.

What is the comparison between web server and application server

After dealing with all the topics I gave you information about web server, application server and how they work together to improve functioning of website.

Now I have to clear many more terminologies like web server, web browser and web client and compare them.

what is a server

A server is a computer that provides information to other computers. These computers are called clients and they connect to the server either through Local Area Network or Wide Area Network. Thus a server manages Network resources. It stores the website in a location and retrieves required information and provides to other computer.

comparison between web server, web client and web browser

Webserver store HTTP & FTP contents of a website and provides information as per HTTP requests in the form of HTML pages, image files , video files etc. If URL is typed on a browser then the server locates this URL and the html web page is served by the web server. So the web browser becomes the client . The web server does the work of processing and providing the web page to the client that is the browser and makes it available to the end user.

what is a web browser

A web browser is a software which allows interaction between web server & user.

Which are the web browsers?

Mozilla fire fox, Microsoft edge, google chrome, safari and Opera. Smart phones use android ios which are also browsers

When the user types the URL or file required then the web browser becomes a client and puts up the request to webserver. The web server processes the request and provides the web page to the browser or client and thus the end user gets the required document. In case the document is not found then the webserver gives error message 404 not found.

A webserver handles upto 80000 connections at a time while web browser handles 500-1000 connections per I P.

over loading of web browser happens because of

slow network, excess web traffic, viruses, trojans and other worms, internet bots.


So we have compared web server web browser or otherwise can be called web client. The web browser features can be expanded by use of plugins. Now we will go to the next topic how to choose application server in the next post.


Best of luck.
