Web pages 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. Web pages are requested and served from web [[servers]] using [[Hypertext Transfer Protocol]] (HTTP).
Web pages may consist of static text and other content stored within the web server's file system (static web pages), or may be constructed by server-side software when they are requested (dynamic web pages). Client-side scripting can make web-pages more responsive to user input once on the client browser.
