Apache is a program that you can run on your own computer or another computer that allows you to setup your own websites. That's the easiest way to explain what it is for. :P

It is a webserver program, the program that servers webpages which powers all the websites you go on.

When you run it off your OWN computer, don't expect it to be as fast as.. say... google.com because they have individual servers... and also... you'll be opening up your own computer to viruses, hacking, etc. If you have a LAN, get you a cheap server somewhere... doesnt have to be top of the line starting off, but put you a server os on it on your good to go with IIS
