The History of The Web

Have you ever visited a website?

Well, if you have, you know how the browsing start. It always starts with a click. A click you make to the URL or to search for something. And there you have loads and loads of link for your search and then you’re searching for the perfect match for your search. So, have you ever thought where does this come from? Or how does this work? So, let’s begin from the very start.

The first web page went live on August 6, 1991. It was dedicated to information on the World Wide Web (www) project and was made by Tim Berners-Lee. It ran on a NeXT computer at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, CERN. The original page no longer exists but a later copy from 1992 can be found at this web address

( You all have heard about the term “www” but do you know what it is or what is does? So basically, WWW is an interconnected system of public webpages accessible through the Internet.
People often confuse Web with the Internet. But the web is not the same as the internet, the web is one of many applications built on top of the internet. In short WWW is a way of accessing information over the medium of the internet.

We all use Emails to send documents text messages and much more. Do you now the history behind its creation or how it was invented and who was the first ever mail sent to? So, the first ever mail was sent by Ray Tomlinson to himself in 1971. Here’s a quote from in in an interview “I was actually working on a mail program but it was programmed for a single computer so that you could send messages from yourself to another user on the same time-sharing computer and I has written a couple of programs to transfer files and it occurred to me that the mail box that I was sending these messages to was nothing more than a file. I could send that file across the network instead of keeping it within the same machine and so I put two programs together modified the code a little bit then the first email program was created“.

What you are reading now is a blog. Let’s see how the term blog came in to existence. In 1994 five years before the 10-blog was even coined Justin Hall was doing just that. Justin’s web-based diary was called Justin’s links from the underground. It offered an early guide to the web but drifted into personal territory over time. The New York Times referred to him as one of the founding fathers of personal blogging. Wasn’t until 1997 that the term web blog was coined this later got shortened to the word “blog”
