Web.config is the file for the local settings to be applied for a website which store configuration data in XML format. The settings of Machine.config file are applied to the whole asp.net applications on your server whereas the settings made in the Web.config file are applied to that particular web application only.

This is also called machine level configuration file.
Only one machine.config file exists on a server.
This file is at the highest level in the configuration hierarchy.


This is automatically created when you create an ASP.Net web application project.
This is also called application level configuration file.
This file inherits setting from the machine.config
