Now that you guys have learned about the internet, we’ll tell you about the web. Everybody who has access to the internet knows what it is but very few knows how to define it. Many people would respond with something on the lines of “The web is the internet”, except that is not true.
The web is within the internet – the internet is the container. For example, the CN Tower is the web while Toronto is the internet. An easier way of describing this is through demonstration. Here is a practical demonstration of the web with real people:
Lilian – Web Surfer
Linda – Computer
Kalytta – Server
Lilian is our web user and she is going to post something on her blog. To do this, Lilian has to put this through her computer, which is Linda. When Linda takes in the information, she changes it into a code called binary code. This binary code is read through any type of electronic technology. The packets of 8-bit binary code are then sent through the internet to the server, which is Kalytta. Now the server will take this binary code and translate it into HTML and it will display onto the web browser. Now that it’s on the web browser, people connected to the internet can view it. This also works if Lilian were to browse another page, except she would be finding somebody else’s server using the web address.
This is a simple way of describing what the web is. but in reality, it is actually quite complicated. We just simplified how the web works in a very simple format to be shown.
