Why are geostationary satellites stationary relative to the earth’s surface?

The period of revolution of geostationary satellites is equal to the period of the axial rotation of the Earth (i.e., a sidereal day, or 23 hours 56 minutes), therefore, moving in the direction of the Earth’s rotation, such a satellite remains motionless relative to the earth’s surface, as if hovering over one place.
