The Internet is a worldwide system of computer networks that are connected and data exchange using the standardized Internet Protocol Suite (TCP / IP). It is a network of millions of private and public, academic, government and business networks that are connected by glass fiber and copper cables of different types of wireless connections.

The name "Internet" is often used in colloquial to refer to the World Wide Web, but the latter is just one of the many services available through the Internet. Others include e-mail, file transfer (FTP), chat services and online games.

The predecessor to the Internet was ARPANET - a network of military networks, and later university networks, which originated in the U.S. in 1969. On 1 January 1983, ARPANET switched the old NCP protocol to TCP / IP and so paved the way for the emergence of the modern Internet.

It was only in the nineties that the public has the Internet "discovered". In August 1991, Tim Berners-Lee and Robert Cailliau published the World Wide Web project after a few years working on HTTP and HTML. The first websites appeared at CERN in Switzerland.

With the invention of pages linked by clickable links (HTML / WWW), the Internet actually made ​​available to the public by Tim. He is therefore regarded as the inventor / founder of the current Internet.

It is the most used means of communication ever. One of the contributing factors to the Internet's success is that it belongs to nobody in its entirety and communication and it is virtually unlimited.

There are several methods to get access to the Internet, such as dial-up connections, broadband (over coaxial, fiber glass or copper cable), Wi-Fi, satellite and 3G mobile phones.

English is by far the dominant language on the Internet (30% of users), followed by Chinese (17%), Spanish (9%), Japanese (7%), French (5%) and German (5%).

Most Internet users are in Asia (40%), followed by Europe (26%), North America (17%), Latin America (10%), Africa (4%), Middle East (3%) and Australia (1%).

As already mentioned, the terms "Internet" and "World Wide Web" (sometimes called the Web) are not synonyms, though it often so used.

The World Wide Web is a great system documents, images and other resources linked by hyperlinks and URLs. This links and URLs web servers and other machines where the original data is stored, able to send data using HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol). HTTP is only one of the Internet communication protocols.
