Describes a technology or program that runs on the server in a client/server system (as opposed to running on the client-side, your local computer system).

On the Web, CGI scripts are server-side apps whereas JavaScript scripts are client-side (they are executed by your browser). Java applets can be either server-side or client-side, depending on which computer executes them.
