ESL 21B Writing 6 Easy Introduction to Internet Sites
Some Internet Sites are on the World Wide Web: http://www. globalpolicy .org/ globaliz /define/index. htm Some Internet sites are not on the Web: http://laneyeslwriting6.kern.org
Every site has a domain name: this is the part of the URL between the // and the first /. For the URL http://www.globalpolicy.org/globaliz/define/index.htm the domain name is www. globalpolicy .org
Every site has a Home Page, or Main Page: http://www.internetworldstats.com http://laneyeslwriting6.kern.org
Other pages are linked to the home page. These are called “internal links.”

When you go to internal link, it’s like turning the pages of a book.
You know that you have reached an internal link because the domain name, the part of the URL between // and the first /, is still the same: http://www.internetworldstats.com http://laneyeslwriting6.kern.org
Sometimes, when you click on a link, it will take you to a completely different site. This is called an external link: http://laneyeslwriting6.kern.org
Now you have left the site and gone to a new one: Home page Internal links External link
It’s as if you put the book back on the shelf and picked up a new one.
You know that you have reached an external link because the domain name in the menu bar has changed. http://laneyeslwritng6.kern.org
