Webpages may be retrieved from a local computer or from a remote web server. The web server may restrict access only to a private network, e.g. a corporate intranet, or it may publish pages on the World Wide Web. Webpages are requested and served from web servers using Hypertext Transfer Protocol.
Webpages may consist of files of static text stored within the web server's file system (static webpages), or may be constructed by server-side software when they are requested (dynamic webpages). Client-side scripting can make webpages more responsive to user input once on the client browser.
