Glossary term: Home Server

/glossary/home_server/

Domain: UBOS Linux

A computer that is primarily accessed over the network, and fully owned by the person who purchased it.

For example, a Raspberry Pi running an open-source web application that allows users to control the lights in their house from a web browser would be a Home Server. As a counter-example, if users could control the lights in their house from a web browser connecting to some vendor’s website, this may involve a “server” in their house, but not one they control.
