    What is a Server?
    Simply put, a server is typically a more powerful computer than your average desktop with better intelligence. It is specifically engineered to deliver information and software to other computers that are linked to it by a network. Servers have the hardware to manage Ethernet-cabled or wireless networking, usually through a router.

    Servers are built to handle heavier workloads and more applications taking advantage of the specific hardware to increase productivity and reduce any downtime.

    Servers also offer remote-management tools, which mean an IT person can check usage, and diagnose problems from another (even remote) location. That also means you can perform routine maintenance such as adding a new user or changing passwords for access.
