A web server refers to the software that helps to deliver web content that can be accessed either through the Internet or through an intranet. The primary function of a web server is to store, process and deliver web pages to clients. The communication between client and server takes place using the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP). The most common use of web servers is to host websites, but there are other uses such as gaming, data storage, running enterprise applications, handling email, FTP, etc.

I'm glad to see Liquidweb is a new topic here. They have been my web host of choice since about 2008 or 9 and I have twenty some posts here on why I like LW https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28434976/recommend-a-hosting-provider.html#a40069498

They completely helped me from migration from a previous host and through several critical server upgrades VPS -> dedicated windows server 2003->2008->2012.  Whenever I have an issue, the person that takes the ticket is friendly and very knowledgeable. Other hosting services I have used, a help call or ticket starts at a low level and has to get escalated. At LW, 99% of the time, the person that you initially contact is the person that fixes the issue be it by submitted ticket or a panicky phone call.

One of the add on services I use for my dedicated server is continuous back up on my SQL Server drive. I have client billing systems on this server and one time did encounter a crash. Because of the continuous back up, no data was lost and everything was restored in quick manner.

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Here are a set of amazing SSL tools: https://www.sslshopper.com/ssl-certificate-tools.html 

These tools were very useful for me for verifying certificate on any site, validating the Certificate Signing Requests, and more. A great site totally based on OpenSSL hence trust worthy.
