In this episode, let’s talk about how the web page request is handling at a macro level. The web address is sent by the browser. This is the request the web server will receive.
Okay, how does this web address get handled and processed? The web address is unique just like your address or cell phone number. That web address is then mapped to a nameserver and the nameservers then map to the physical server(s) where the website is being hosted, meaning where the files are stored.
Let’s talk about this request and help you to visualize it.
