Web servers. As the name implies, serve websites or web services.
They commonly run apache, IIS, tomcat, or another popular brand of webserver application.
Traditionally for small sites, you can use a single server. But in this day and age, the architecture is much more complicated for big sites. There are often load balancers like Nginx or Haproxy used in front of a fleet of webservers to allow for more traffic or more distributed load and higher availability.
A basic check I use to determine if I'm dealing with a web server is to look at the TCP ports it's listening on. Web traffic is served on port 80 for HTTP and port 443 for https if your application is listening on these ports, its probably serving web traffic.

Run regular vulnerability checks and Update Virus definitions. There are web sites that keep updating vulnerability information for different platforms. It is ideal to constantly browse these sites and keep checking if it applicable for the platform and applications housed in your web server. Another mandatory task is to update virus definition files regularly.
