Transcript

  • 1. Introduction to the Internet
  • 2. What is the Internet
    • The Internet, or World Wide Web, is global network linking various computers and networks together
    • The Internet began as a small network of govt. computers using a text based system
    • Evolved into a graphical user interface which we recognize today (web pages)
    • Web pages contain links to other pages (distinguishing feature)
  • 3. Connecting to the Internet
    • Connection to the internet requires an Internet Service Provider (the bridge between computers)
    • Connection types: Dial-up, DSL, Cable, Wireless (Costs vary)
  • 4. Web Browsers
    • Software used to view web pages on the internet (uses GUI)
    • Allows viewing and moving between pages by left-clicking links or entering web addresses
  • 5. Web Address Structure
    • 1) http:// (hypertext transfer protocol- identifies language being used to view pages)
    • 2)WWW (identifies use of the World Wide Web) – most need this, some dont
    • 3)Site name - name of the site to be visited
    • 4)Domain name – identifies type of webpage (ex. .com, .org, .gov)
    • Ex. http://www.nypl.org
  • 6. Web Address Structure
    • Domain names can tell you who is providing the website, where .com generally refers to commercial, .gov to government, .edu to educational institutions, etc
    • There are no spaces in a web address, separation is represented with underscores (“_”)
    • Email addresses are different than web addresses (web addresses do not use the @ symbol seen with email addresses)
