Difference between Web Server and Application Server

    A web server serves websites to the user while an application server let's the user use applications. An application server is more likely to be used on an internal network and will be a central server where all the software is installed so that it doesn't have to be installed on each separate machine.

    Hope this helps,

    If I'm wrong, let me know.
