What are two ways a served ball can be received legally in volleyball?

Well you're allowed to have an underhand serve, which is a serve where you just swing your arm back while taking two steps, then hit the ball. You hit the ball with your fist. Then a side serve is pretty much the same except there's more power, and your arm is more at a 80 degree angle. You hit the ball with your fist. Then an overhand (or overhead) serve is a serve where you take a couple of steps and hit the ball with your hand over your head. You can hit it with your fist or will your hand. I personally prefer using my hand. Hope this helps!
