HİSTORY OF INTERNET. The Internet had its roots during the 's as a project of the United States government's Department of Defense, to create a. brief history of the. Internet by Alice Keefer and Tomas Baiget. When an article on the history of the Internet was first suggested, our reaction was, “But doesn't. Brief History of the Internet. What is the Internet? The Concise Oxford English Dictionary describes the Internet as “an international information network.

The same year, Arpanet ceased to exist. The first web page was created and, much like the first email explained what email was, its purpose was to explain what the World Wide Web was. MP3 files, being highly compressed, later become a popular file format to share songs and entire albums via the internet.

It was deployed at a Cambridge University computer lab, and its sole purpose was to monitor a particular coffee maker so that lab users could avoid wasted trips to an empty coffee pot. First, SSL Secure Sockets Layer encryption was developed by Netscape, making it safer to conduct financial transactions like credit card payments online.

In addition, two major online businesses got their start the same year.

Echo Bay later became site. The Vatican also went online for the first time. Java and JavaScript originally called LiveScript by its creator, Brendan Eich , and deployed as part of the Netscape Navigator browser — see comments for explanation was first introduced to the public in ActiveX was launched by Microsoft the following year. Google went live in , revolutionizing the way in which people find information online.

The project has created the equivalent of a giant supercomputer by harnessing the computing power of more than 3 million computers worldwide, using their processors whenever the screensaver comes on, indicating that the computer is idle.

The program analyzes radio telescope data to look for signs of extraterrestrial intelligence.

Hundreds of companies closed, some of which had never turned a profit for their investors. It later grew to be the most popular social network at one time though it has since been overtaken by Facebook. During the first Web 2. Social media—sites and web applications that allow its users to create and share content and to connect with one another—started around this period.

A Brief Guide to the History of the Internet

People loved the idea of being able to travel through their friends and families pictures and adventures, despite not being physically present. Digg , a social news site, launched on November of , paving the way for sites such as Reddit , Mixx, and Yahoo! Digg revolutionized traditional means of generating and finding web content, democratically promoting news and web links that are reviewed and voted on by a community.

Presidential election. It was the first year that national candidates took full advantage of all the Internet had to offer.

Hillary Clinton jumped on board early with YouTube campaign videos. Virtually every candidate had a Facebook page or a Twitter feed, or both. These technologies made it possible to exchange data such as files between remote computers.

However, the point-to-point communication model was limited, as it did not allow for direct communication between any two arbitrary systems; a physical link was necessary. The technology was also considered unsafe for strategic and military use because there were no alternative paths for the communication in case of an enemy attack.

A brief history of the internet

Development of wide area networking With limited exceptions, the earliest computers were connected directly to terminals used by individual users, typically in the same building or site. Such networks became known as local area networks LANs.

Networking beyond this scope, known as wide area networks WANs , emerged during the s and became established during the s. Inspiration J. Licklider's identified need for inter-networking would become obvious by the apparent waste of resources this caused. For each of these three terminals, I had three different sets of user commands.

So if I was talking online with someone at S. I said, oh man, it's obvious what to do: If you have these three terminals, there ought to be one terminal that goes anywhere you want to go where you have interactive computing. That idea is the ARPAnet. Licklider later returned to lead the IPTO in for two years. Early networks used message switched systems that required rigid routing structures prone to single point of failure.

History of the Internet

Kleinrock subsequently developed the mathematical theory behind the performance of this technology building on his earlier work on queueing theory. It provides better bandwidth utilization and response times than the traditional circuit-switching technology used for telephony, particularly on resource-limited interconnection links.

Licklider, Donald Davies became interested in data communications for computer networks. The following year, he described the use of an "Interface computer" to act as a router.

He intended to realize Licklider's ideas of an interconnected networking system. We typed the O, and we asked, "Do you see the O.

Yet a revolution had begun" Stamp of Azerbaijan, By , the number of hosts had grown to , with a new host being added approximately every twenty days. For various political reasons, European developers were concerned with developing the X.BBC News.

The original aim was to create a network that would allow users of a research computer at one university to "talk to" research computers at other universities.

The technology was also considered unsafe for strategic and military use because there were no alternative paths for the communication in case of an enemy attack. By , the number of hosts had grown to , with a new host being added approximately every twenty days.

When asked to explain my role in the creation of the internet, I generally use the example of a city. The record exists in people's basements, in closets.

An increase in the amount of computers on the network made it difficult to keep track of all the different IP addresses. During the early years of the Internet, email and similar mechanisms were also fundamental to allow people to access resources that were not available due to the absence of online connectivity.
