Apache - the most popular free HTTP server, which runs half of all sites on the Internet. Its development began in 1995 as an alternative to the then common NCSA HTTPd, and later quickly gained popularity, Apache holds the lead and nowadays. This is partly due to the high reliability, fault tolerance and safety, as well as the flexible configuration and connectivity of the modules, which currently number more than 500 units. Among the most common modules - extensions that provide support for basic scripting languages - PHP, Python, Perl, Ruby, Java and so on.

In addition to the installation version, the server is also distributed in the form of source codes, and is primarily focused on systems based on UNIX / BSD. To install Apache in Windows, you can use prebuilt assemblies that include all the components you need to work with: XAMPP, WampServer, as well as Open Server, which is great for debugging and testing sites and web projects in the local network or on a single computer.

- The server is completely free, distributed under the Apache License 2.0 license;

- the ability to connect a large number of modules;

- cross-platform;

- IPv6 support;

- high reliability and safety;

- flexible three-level configuration;

- Unicode support.

I have been using Apache for years, and I find that it is the most reliable and flexible program to use in my work. I have rarely if ever had problems with this product and would recommend it without hesitation to anybody who wishes to have a smooth experience.
Apache is a great web (HTTP) server to serve web pages to people, which I use along with PHP using another free piece of software called XAMPP (which is a software package including Apache/PHP). I like the fact that this is free software, and that this can easilly work in most web-hosting purposes.
I highly recommend Open Serve for windows to all web developers. This software is very easy to navigate and it handles all the hard work for you. Open serve comes with several different features, some features even give you the ability to create your own assemblies, connect to additional components and so forth. You can choose from three different versions such as basic, premium, ultimate. Whether you're just getting started as a web developer or you're an expert, open serve has all the necessities you'll need for web developing.
