Difference between net and web
‘Necessity is the mother of invention’- this proverb has been the inspiration behind many technological developments. Net, or internet as we see it today, was used for the first time by US military during the Cold War. Internet was developed by US as an answer to Soviet Union’s Sputnik satellite. In the US, private, commercial and government-owned computers were connected together to facilitate real-time sharing of information packets. Information was packed with help of high-speed optical fibres, satellite and cables. Surprisingly enough, though all computers in the US were connected in a network, internet was not publically used. We often wonder what internet and web actually are.
How internet works
1. You have to type in a web address while searching using web browser such as Google. This web address automatically changes to internet protocol (IP) after which it advances further via Internet Service Providers (ISP). Every country has its own ISP network which is connected to a group of large computer network. It is also known as Internet backbone.
