Hi Kumar,

The Sharepoint heirarchy is like below

SERVER FARMS
WEB APPLICATIONS
SITE COLLECTIONS
SITES
LISTS, LIBRARIES etc....

At the top of the hierarchy are server farms. This encompasses all the physical servers that comprise your SP installation and Once you have your server farm you must set up a web application. This is what creates a corresponding website in IIS to host the site. This is where it gets its application pool and other IIS properties. You can create multiple web applications on a server farm and then you have site collections. It is simply a collection of SharePoint sites inside the web application. Here you define a top-level site. You can have multiple site collections. From your site collection you have a top-level site that will have multiple sites underneath it. And finally we have the content inside the sites. This includes (but not limited to) lists, libraries, web parts, etc.

Chakradhar.
