The history of the internet and the web is so rich that it would be difficult to write such an exhaustive and fascinating story. Explore the story, discovering or remembering certain facts and facts. The web is not the same as the internet, even if the two are closely linked. So we can't talk about the Web without the Internet, while the reverse could be true. Here are some key facts to help you understand the evolution of the phenomenon.
The World Wide Web, that brilliant invention by Tim Berners-Lee, has transformed the Internet so much that it has become synonymous with some. And yet, the Web is just one of many applications running on a TCP / IP protocol. But it is, without a doubt, the one that, along with e-mail, has been the most massively adopted by the general public because it is so easy to use. It is impossible to take a tour of the technologies, sites and services that have (already) marked the long history of the internet. But here are the main moments.

After several years of studies, the envisaged solution largely recommends the establishment of a decentralized network, presenting a network structure, each node (computer) being able to send (upload), but also receive (download) messages. This is how the internet can be described in a nutshell.
