What is a server?
A computer software application that carries out some task (i.e. provides a service) on behalf of yet another piece of software called a client. In the case of Hattrick, the client is a mostly a webbrowser and the server is Internet Information Server (IIS).
Although only the Hattrick team knows about the exact server setup, it is assumed that there are several webservers behind a load balancer, accompanied by database servers.
The webservers can be recognized by a number after the 'www'. However, it is required by HT that you enter Hattrick through [http://www.hattrick.org].
