What is a server? 

A server is a computer. If you can explain in simple language, servers are more than one computer that works together. The server is busy sending and receiving a lot of data simultaneously.

As soon as the data is sent by the server, the Web Browser available in our computer works to retrieve the data given by the server, the same process happens whenever we use the Internet in any way.

Servers are very different from our computers, servers are built in such a way that they can run at all times. Because the server always has to keep running, the server cannot be shut down even for a second. Today, there are separate servers for all the services we use on the Internet.

If we need any kind of information, then we take the help of servers available around the world. We have often seen that we upload any image on social media, even after many years, those images are safe. The reason was that the image was uploaded on the server.

We use the server for this because this server is available 24 hours 7 days and 365 days a year, the servers are always working, this is why it is called a server.

If you want to make your computer a server as well, then you can do this, you just have to install the server software. But here one thing to keep in mind is that you cannot always keep your computer.
