The terms internet and World Wide Web are often used interchangeably, but they are not exactly the same thing; the internet refers to the global communication system, including hardware and infrastructure, while the web is one of the services communicated over the internet.

When you put an envelope in the post, it can contain many different types of data: a love letter, an invoice, a photograph, and so on.

As computing advanced, peer-to-peer (P2P) communication was gradually delivered and enhanced. Since the 1990s, the internet has greatly influenced and upgraded networking to global standards.

This makes the web and the internet appear to be the same thing. However, these applications existed before the web was invented, and can still run without it.

The internet traces its origins to the ARPAnet, created by the US Defence Department’s Advanced Research Projects Agency in the 1960s. Many other networks were developed - some by commercial companies, some in different countries - but they couldn’t easily talk to one another.

Vint Cerf and Bob Kahn developed TCP/IP, ’A Protocol for Packet Network Interconnection’ (in 1974), to connect different networks.

The internet was thus a ’network of networks’, although the Internet Protocol (IP) came to dominate networking.

At the end of 1969, there were only four computers on ARPAnet, and they were all at US universities.

The term "surfing" the internet was coined in 1992 by an upstate New York librarian Jean Armour Polly, aka "Net Mom."

This grew to 5,000 internet hosts in 1986, after which the number of users grew rapidly into the millions and then hundreds of millions.

The first YouTube video was uploaded April 23, 2005. It's called "Me at the zoo," and features Jawed Karim, one of the founders, at the San Diego Zoo.

The main reasons for this massive increase were the opening of what had been an academic and government network to commercial users, and its rapid spread from the US to the rest of the world.
