WebDAV I believe is/was a protocol used for transfer/storage of data on the web, similar to the Cloud. I'm not sure if it is even still in use, I think it goes back to the 90's. Others on here may have more information on WebDaV and whether or not it is still in use.

WebDAV is a type of network drive

I am not sure what planet pgc3 is from. WebDAV is still widely used and you can find many servers and clients that use the WebDAV protocol from NAS devices to software that automates backup.

Check out the WebDAV info page for the BarracudaDrive WebDAV server. This page includes a video and shows how you can use WebDAV from many clients such as Windows, Mac, Android, iPhone, etc.
