Something that operates on the " server" computer (supplying the web page), in contrast to the "client" computer (receives and views the web page). Usually it is something that supplies dynamic content.
Running programs on a web server rather than on the client computer. See server-side image map, client-side.
Refers to a type of software accessed via the Internet and that resides on the computer server of the web site, rather than needing to be downloaded and run locally on the client's computer.
Denotes something done on your web host's computer - or your server, if you've got your own - rather than on your computer. In general, server-side is the way to go for speed. A couple of thousand newsletters can be sent in a few minutes, whereas if you sent them yourself you'd tie up your computer for hours (you can imagine your teenagers chafing to check their e-mail). See also Client-side.
Something that is done totally on your Web host's computer (or your own server, if you run you own), not on your desktop computer. It is generally a much faster way to get stuff done.
The server side of a client-server system. On the web, your browser is thought to be the client and a web server hosting a web site is thought to be the server (hence the name). When you request a document from a web server by entering an URL or clicking on a link, the server sends information to your client (in this case your browser) in the form of text, graphics or audio.
Server-side on the internet refers to scripts that are run on the Web server. Scripts that are run on your computer are known as client-side.
Calculations about the game done by the server and sent to the client (where players are, for example) are said to be done server-side (as opposed to client-side.)
Most of the processing work is done by the server computer, then the data is sent to the client computer.
Something that operates on the "server" computer (providing the Web page), as opposed to the "client" computer (which is you or someone else viewing the Web page). Usually it is a program or command or procedure or other application causes dynamic pages or animation or other interaction.
Refers to all of the activities completed by a server before a Web page is sent to a client. CGI, PHP, and ASP are some examples of server-side programs.
Any requirement or procedure that relies upon and executes on a server computer. Many database technologies are Server-Side.
In the client-server relationship, a process occurring on the server can be said to be server-side. Compare with: Client-side.
server-side includes: Action or interpretation on the server side of a client-server transaction. For instance, a CGI script residing on a server can create HTML documents on the fly from form data, display a graphical odometer or page counter or redirect your browser to a particular Web document based on the type or version of software you are using.
Pertaining to methods in which the solution resides in the server, rather than the client.
A computer, or a software package, that provides a specific kind of service to client software running on other computers. The term can refer to a particular piece of software, such as a WWW server, or to the machine on which the software is running, e.g. "Our mail server is down today, that's why e-mail isn't getting out." A single server machine can (and often does) have several different server software packages running on it, thus providing many different servers to clients on the network.
Scripts or programs that are executed on the server to produce output delivered to the client. For example, the output of a search engine is produced by a program running on the server side.
With server-side scripting, completing an activity involves sending information to another computer (server) across the internet. The server then runs a program that process the information and returns the results, typically a web page. Search engines use server-side processing. When a keyword is sent, a program on a server matches the word or phrase entered against an index of website content. (To complete the same search as a client-side process would require the browser to download the entire search engine program and index.) Server-side scripting languages include ASP and PHP. Server Side Scripting and Programming Languages A variety of scripting and programming languages is available to you in order to give greater function to your web site. Some of the primary examples are: Unix, Perl, shell script, Server-Side Includes (SSI), PHP, Miva (formerly HTML Script), NT, Cold Fusion, and Active Server Pages (ASP).
HTML coding that instructs a server to undertake a task. Opposite to client-side
In computer networking, the term server-side refers to operations that are performed by the server in a client-server relationship.
