The Internet and Website

Connecting millions of computers worldwide, it forms a network in which any computer can communicate with any other computer as long as both are connected to the Internet. If you connect your computer to the Internet, it connects to that network - and you can send or receive information online from any other computer or server. On the other hand, the World Wide Web is the system we use to access the Internet. This is a website that indexes material on the Internet or an intranet (and more recently in traditional media such as books and newspapers) and provides links to information in response to a request. This is a Web site where users share other content from the Internet and rate and comment on that content.

Web and Internet are not the same.

Often the words "the Internet" and "the Web" are used as if they were the same. Since the 1960s, the Internet has been under constant evolution and is a way for different types of computer around the globe to communicate with each other. No matter whether it's to download a downloadable version of a website or chat with a friends from Skype, it's the Internet that links the people.

Internet is not really a separate individual network - it is just a collection of protocols (Internet protocols) that allow different kinds of communication among them. By connecting your computer to the Internet, it connects to this LAN - and you can broadcast or retrieve information from any other computer or computer serving the Internet.

Web (or World Wide Web) is the system of web pages and websites that use the Internet to transmit data. Web is just one of many Internet using service - other service are e-mail, Internet calling and peer-to-peer data-transfer. Not too long into the near term, most likely, will get all their TV programming over the Internet.

As many of the Internet related utilities (e.g. email) are now accessible via web sites, the mix is likely to worsen. Simply put, just think that the Internet is the computer networking, the Web is a ministry that uses it.
