Service is a name for a function performed by your computer on a continuous basis (my words), often via a daemon.

Service (service) is also a command | program | script that exists in at least Mandrake distributions to help control services, like Apache (httpd), ftp, DNS (??routed), .... (See also inetd and xinetd.)

Typical commands include:

  • service httpd status
  • service routed stop
  • service httpd start
  • service httpd restart
  • service -s (to see the status of all services)

The script is found in /sbin/service and can make worthwhile reading. AFAICT, it relieves you of having to do something like "kill HUP" to stop and restart a service.
