If you have to understand how does server works? first of all, you have to understand how the client-server model works.

So to understand this letโ€™s take an example of a web server. suppose you want to open a Facebook account in your browser.

For this, you type the website address of Facebook and press enter. So at first, the request will go to the DNS(Domain Name Server) and DNS will provide the IP address of Facebook.

Now with the help of that IP address browser will find the server of Facebook and it will send the request to the server of Facebook.

After getting the request the server will reach your Facebook page up to you.

So this is the way how the client-server model works and the same as this model server will also work. I hope you will understand.
