I am new to GIS world. I am trying to host raster images (TIFF) which I need to convert in tiles and host on GeoServer and prepare the service URL so that any user using that service zoom to any location, the service will get the tiles of that location and display it.

I am able to convert the raster image to tiles which create multiple folders and put the tiles into it using gdal2tiles. Now I am not getting the option to upload that folder in the GeoServer to achieve my task.

Can anyone explain what I need to do or guide me to any tutorial where I can study and achieve my task?

You are looking for an image pyramid layer, there is a full tutorial in the manual as well.
