In the modern world, we can easily find information about almost anything with just a single click or search. In simple words, the world wide web (www) is a system that connects thousands of online resources, including web pages, audio files, and documents. Where the resources for this network are made available via web servers, which house the actual data or resources of websites on the internet and can be accessed via a web browser, search engines efficiently and clearly display the information.
