(Stair, 2001). The Internet was established roughly a quarter-century ago to meet the needs of researchers working in the defense industry in the United States. (Falk, 1994). The Internet is the transport vehicle for information stored in files or documents on another computer. (www.lib.berkeley.edu). Soon after computers became available in the late 1950s, there was a need to initiate and promote electronic communication.

(www.w3.org). The World Wide Web is a way of accessing information over the medium of the Internet, its and information sharing model that is built on top of the Internet. The World Wide Web uses protocol, one of the languages spoken over the internet to transmit data. World Wide Web services allows applications to communicate in order to exchange business logic and to share information. (www.webopedia.com). The World Wide Web also utilises browsers, such as Internet Explorer or Netscape to access web documents which are called Web pages, they are linked via hyperlinks. (www.webopedia.com). ORIGINS OF THE WORLD WIDE WEB The World Wide Web started at Switzerland in the 1980s, a British computer scientist was working at a Swiss physics laboratory when he got fed up with his daily planner which was computerised as the phone numbers which he stored and the documents he had wrote were both stored on separate databases and there was no way that he could connect them both together. So he decided to do something about it, he created a hypertext computer program that allowed him to make the connections.

CONCLUSION As it has been investigated the Internet is the Worlds largest computer network, consists of thousands of interconnected networks and all exchange information. The growth of the Internet is increasing rapidly and there are over 45,000 networks connected in over 200 nations, the growth of the Internet is hard to measure as the numbers are always changing at an increasing speed. The relationships between the Internet and World Wide Web are that they are both global communications networks that allow people to exchange information. The relationship between the two is very important as the Web made the Internet useful as it contains information which people are interested in. The World Wide Web was established in 1980 by a scientist who came up with the idea to merge together technologies, computer networking and hypertext into being able to use global information from all over the world and he came up with the World Wide Web. The World Wide Web and the Internet have benefited businesses as it allows businesses to meet customer and supplier demands, it helps develop new products into the market industry and businesses are able to communicate with suppliers all over the world and it can help businesses to run effectively and efficiently if they are able to meet the needs of their customers and suppliers. ...read more.
