web.config allows you to add configuration settings for a specific website that contains that specific web.config file. you can additionally create web.config files in specific folders of your website and their setting apply just to that folder and below.
machine.config also contains configuration settings, but they apply to the entire machine (all websites) unless a specific web.config has overridden them.
