History: 

Although we have been using the World Wide Web for a very long time and for many different things, it was initially intended to be a document management system. Tim Berners-Lee created it in 1989 while he was employed at CERN, and it became accessible to the general public in 1991. He created the fundamental building blocks of the web, including HTML, HTTP, Server, World Wide Web Browser, and the first website ever made on the Internet

There were more than 50 websites on the internet within the first two years of the World Wide Web's existence, the majority of which belonged to academic and scientific institutions. By the middle of the 1990s, more than a thousand people were using the internet, but at the time, it was thought of as a luxury. Today, however, it is a necessity for billions of people due to advancements in technology and widespread accessibility. 

To comprehend the World Wide Web, we must first understand its basic functional components.

URLs: We use URLs to define the location of a specific web page or to access a specific resource on the internet.

HTML: which stands for Hypertext Markup Language, is a web language that is understandable and readable by web browsers.

HTTP: In short, it is the set of protocols or rules that govern the Internet.

Significance: 

We are all well aware of the significance of the internet and the creation of the World Wide Web in creating a global network that connects almost the entire world. Today, we use or access the internet for a variety of reasons, the most common of which is to gather information.

The Internet and Web has simplified our lives, and we now use it for everything from booking plane tickets to ordering milk packets. The social media platform has had a significant impact on the current generation. However, in addition to its entertainment applications, the Internet has assisted millions of people in acquiring or learning a new skill or information. This web's contribution to our lives is admirable.
