Coca-Cola and Pepsi are the two more well-known colas, but there are others on the market with a loyal following. In a similar vein, Apache and Microsoft's IIS (Internet Information Services) dominate the Web server software industry with other lesser known products that have their own fans.

Besides Web servers, there are also other servers associated with the Internet, such as application, network, file, DNS (domain name system), mail, and FTP.
