HTTPD
Last modified: Thursday, August 12, 2004 

(pronounced as separate letters) Short for HTTP daemon, a software program that runs in the background of a Web server and waits for incoming server requests. The daemon answers the requests automatically and serves the hypertext and multimedia documents over the Internet using HTTP.
