World Wide Web

Nearly every time we use the internet to access a website, we type the letters “www,” but most people don’t really stop to consider what these letters mean.

The World Wide Web, whose service links documents and makes it possible for users to access information, images, sounds, and videos through hyperlinks, in this information system.  Typically, these three letters are included in the URL, or Uniform Resource Locator, that we type to access a specific website.

The World Wide Web, often known as WWW, W3, or the Web is an interconnected system of public webpages accessible through the Internet. The Web is not the same as the Internet: the Web is one of many applications built on top of the Internet.

The architecture of the World Wide Web was developed by Tim BernersLee. At the CERN physics research lab in 1990, he developed the first web server, web browser, and webpage on his computer. The first public announcement of the Web was made by him in 1991 on the alt.hypertext newsgroup.

The system we know today as “the Web” consists of several components:

The HTTP protocol governs data transfer between a server and a client.


A client must supply a special universal identifier, also known as a URL (uniform resource locator) or URI (uniform resource identifier) (formerly known as a Universal Document Identifier (UDI)), in order to access a Web component.

For publishing web documents, HTML (hypertext markup language) is the most popular format.

html web design code for developers and designers.

Linking, or connecting resources through hyperlinks, is a defining concept of the Web, aiding its identity as a collection of connected documents.

Tim Berners-Lee established the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to standardize and develop the Web shortly after it was created. This consortium is made up of core Web interest groups, such as web browser developers, government entities, researchers, and universities. Both outreach and education are part of its goal.
