Considering the question of the OP, it seemed to be a very generic question, not 
particularly specific to the httpd server or Tomcat.
Considering the premise "if some one comes with complete zero experience of web 
hosting..", then I would add : start with the HTTP RFC (Google for "http rfc 2616").
Then go to, and maybe start with httpd.
Then if you want to really learn about how Apache does things internally (as opposed to 
just its configuration), my suggestion would be here :
(This is part of the mod_perl documentation, but it is at the same time the best 
introduction to the Apache httpd internals which I know of).
Then if Tomcat is your main point of interest, grab yourself a copy of the Java Servlet 
Specification.  It is dense, but fairly readable, and a must before you really start 
dabbling with Tomcat.
Then go to and read the documentation.
At the end of that, you'll already know more than most people on this forum.
