The internet is a structure that is made up of millions of
interconnected computers which allows users to communicate with each
other and share information. To connect to this network of computers, a
user needs an internet access. Regardless of location, a user can
quickly access information from internet.
So everywhere you look today, you’ll see internet address. An internet
address (specifically URL) specifies the location on the internet of
pages that present information about a company, group, an individual,
etc. Example of URLs includes http://www.scriptingmater.com,
http://www.scripting-mater.com, and http://www.scriptingmater.org, etc.
An internet information page is known as a webpage. A user can easily
and efficiently move between pages by following links. A web browser
allows users to access web pages. Examples of web browsers include
Microsoft Internet Explorer, Netscape, Mozilla, etc.
To create a web page, authors use a markup language. The most common markup language is Hypertext Markup Language (HTML).
