As we begin our exploration, let’s first define two terms-the internet and the World Wide Web. The Internet is a vast network of networked computers (hardware and software) that connects millions of people all over the world. The World Wide Web is a multimedia-based collection of information, services, and Web sites supported by the Internet. So, the Internet is the technology infrastructure that makes the Web possible, and the Web is what you use to have fun, to work, and to be productive with.
Web Sites, Web Pages, and Web Addresses:
As you begin to surf the Web, you’ll encounter Websites and pages, each with a unique address. As formal definitions, we would offer you the following.
Web page:- Each electronic document on the Web called a Web page, which can contain text, graphics, animation, audio, and video. Additionally Web pages usually have built-in connections to other documents.
We found two types of web pages. There are static (fixed) and dynamic (changing). In static web page visitor sees same content. With a dynamic Web page, on the contrary, visitors can customize any or all content displayed as you would like stock quotes, weather for a region, or the availability of tickets for flights
Website:- A Web site is a collection of related Web pages and associated items, such as documents and pictures, stored on a Web Server.
Web browser:– A Web browser, or browser, is application software that allows users to access and view Web pages or access Web 2.0 programs. To browse the Web, you need a computer or mobile device that is connected to the Internet and has a Web browser. The more widely use web browsers for personal computers are Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Safari, and Google Chrome.
Web Addresses:- A Web page has a unique address, called a URL (Uniform Resource Locator) or Web addresses.
For example, the iusbd.com is a website, and its website address (domain name) is http://www.iusbd.com . A web browser retrieves a Web page using its Web address. Like most websites, IUSBD contains numerous web pages.
