What Roles Can Linux Servers Have?

Perhaps the most common role a Linux server can have is as a web server. These servers respond to client HTTP requests on the public Internet as well as on private LANs and WANs.

A database server is another common type of Linux server role. It provides various database services to applications that operate within a client-server model. It not only manages data within a database but also performs operations on it.

A Linux server can also provide centralized authentication that a number of services use to control access.

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) services is yet another Linux server role. These servers dynamically assign IP addresses and other network configuration parameters to devices on a network, so that they, in turn, can communicate with other IP networks.

You can further use a Linux server as a certification authority (CA). These servers issue and manage digital certificates that certify that a public key rightfully belongs to its owner.
