My basic, and probably insufficiently nuanced, understanding is that servers are computers that don't need user interfaces (monitors, keyboard, etc), and they are programmed to receive data requests and deliver said data according to the protocols that comprise the internet (IP, TCP, HTTP, etc).Actually what do servers do?
