1. What is Internet?
- The Internet is a global system of interconnected computer networks that use the standard Internet protocol suite (often called TCP/IP, although not all applications use TCP) to serve billions of users worldwide. It is a network of networks that consists of millions of private, public, academic, business, and government networks, of local to global scope, that are linked by a broad array of electronic, wireless and optical networking technologies. The Internet carries an extensive range of information resources and services, such as the ...view middle of the document...
This becomes quite important when discussing the scalability
of certain technologies based on IP packet formats. some
protocols will work at "Big-I Internet scale" (TCP, DNS, HTTP,
and TLS are but a few examples), while other protocols will
only work at "little-i internet scale". (DHCP, RADIUS, and
UDP/NFS are examples to varying degrees)
i think it is *very* important to keep a strong distinction
between "just a random network using IP", and the highly-connected
global IP-based network at I use to send you this email.
and if balkanization is indeed a risk in the near future,
reserving Big-I Internet for the highly-connected region could
be very important indeed.
4. What is URL?
- A URL (Uniform Resource Locator, previously Universal Resource Locator) - usually pronounced by sounding out each letter but, in some quarters, pronounced "Earl" - is the unique address for a file that is accessible on the Internet. A common way to get to a Web site is to enter the URL of its home page file in your Web browser's address line. However, any file within that Web site can also be specified with a URL. Such a file might be any Web (HTML) page other than the home page, an image file, or a program such as a common gateway interface application or Java applet. The URL contains the name of the protocol to be used to access the file resource, a domain name that identifies a specific computer on the Internet, and a pathname, a hierarchical description that specifies the location of a file in that computer.
5. What is a Browser?
- A browser is software that accesses and displays pages and files on the web. Browsers require a connection to the Internet (e.g., through a cable modem, a direct Ethernet connection, or Wi-Fi). Popular web browsers include Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Safari. Firefox is available for both Windows and Mac computers. Internet Explorer is only available for Windows. Safari is available for Mac OS X, iOS, and Windows.
6. What is HTML?
-HyperText Markup Language (HTML) is the main markup language for displaying web pages and other information that can be displayed in a web browser.HTML is written in the form of HTML elements consisting of tags enclosed in angle brackets (like ), within the web page content. HTML tags most commonly come in pairs like and , although some tags, known as empty elements, are unpaired, for example . The first tag in a pair is...
