Hi there, yadin! Generally speaking, when we are talking about information being sent over the internet or a network we have a client and a server. The client requests information and the server sends back a response. That response can then be rendered to the client that requested it. Your web browser is a client. You request information from Treehouse and Treehouse sends back a response which is then rendered by your client. This could be a web browser, a desktop application, a mobile app or just about anything that requests information from the server and then presents it to the user.

In this course inside the Digital Literacy track you can find a more detailed explanation of clients and servers and how they communicate.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

OH thank you very much :)
