$_SERVER is an Array that stores information about the server PHP is running on, such as headers, paths, and script locations. The entries in this array are created by the web server.
The $_SERVER Array is a 'superglobal' variable. This means that it is available in all scopes throughout a script, you can access it directly within functions or classes.
- To access an element of the superglobal $_SERVER array you can use the fallowing syntax:

$_SERVER['INDEX']
- 'INDEX' represents the name of the superglobal element to be accessed, it must be written in uppercase and within quotes.
  For example, to display the domain name where the script runs:
echo $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'];
