In this post, we covered important web components such as load balancers, CDNs, Web application firewalls, DNS Servers ,etc as part of TryHackMe Putting it all together

To summarize, when you request a website, your computer needs to know the server’s IP address it needs to talk to; for this, it uses DNS. Your computer then talks to the web server using a special set of commands called the HTTP protocol; the webserver then returns HTML, JavaScript, CSS, Images, etc., which your browser then uses to correctly format and display the website to you. There are also a few other components that help the web run more efficiently and provide extra features.
