Timeline history of internet

  1. 1. 1957 USSR launches Sputnik, first artificial earth satellite In response, US forms the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) within the Department of Defense to establish lead in science and technology applicable to the military 1969 ARPANET commissioned by Department of Defense for research into networking 1971 15 nodes(23 hosts) on ARPANET Email is invented First virus was created called Creeper
  2. 2. 1972 First public demonstration of ARPANET between 40 machines Internetworking Working Group (INWG) created to address need for establishing agreed upon protocols 1974 Transmission Control Program (TCP) specified. Packet network intercommunication, basis of Internet Communication Telenet, a commercial version of ARPANET opened-first public packet data service
  3. 3. 1976 UUCP (Unix –to-Unix CoPy) developed at AT&T Bell Labs and distributed with UNIX 1977 Number of hosts breaks 100 THEORYNET provides email to over 100 researchers in computer science using a locally developed email system and telenet for access to server First demonstration of ARPANET/Packet Radio Net/SATNET operation of Internet protocols over gateways 1979 USENET established using UUCP First MUD (Multiuser Dungeon), interactive multiuser sites. Interactive adventure games, board games, rich and detailed databases ARPA establishes the Internet Configuration Control Board (ICCB) Packet Radio Network (PRNET) experiment starts with ARPA funding. Most communications take place between mobile vans
  4. 4. 1981 BITNET (Because It’s Time NETwork) provides email and list servers to distribute information as well as file transfers CSNET (Computer Science NETwork) established to provide networking services (specially email) to university scientists with no access to ARPANET; later known as Computer and Science Network 1982 DCA and ARPA establishes the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and Internet Protocol (IP) as the protocol suite; commonly known as TCP/IP for ARPANET EUnet (European UNIX Network) created by EUUG to provide email and USENET services. Original connections between the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden and UK. External Gateway Protocol (EGP) used for gateways between (different architecture) networks 1983 Name server developed Desktop workstations come into being Internet Activities Board (AB) established replacing ICCB Berkeley releases new version of UNIX 4.2BSD incorporating TCP/IP EARN (European Academic and Research Network) established on similar lines to BITNET
  5. 5. 1984 Number of hosts breaks 1000 Domain Name Server (DNS) introduced JANET (Joint Academic Network) established in UK Moderated newsgroups introduced on USENET 1986 5000 hosts, 241 newsgroups NSFNET created (backbone speed of 56 kbps) NSF establishes 5 super-computing centers to provide high-computing power for all Network News Transfer Protocol (NNTP) designed to enhance Usenet news performance over TCP/IP
  6. 6. 1989 Number of hosts breaks 100,000 First relays between a commercial electronic mail carrier and the Internet Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and Internet Research Task Force (IRTF) comes into existence under the IAB 1990 300,000 Hosts. 1,000 News groups ARPANET ceases to exist Archie released files can be searched and retrieved (FTP) by name. The World comes on-line (world.std.com), becoming the first commercial provider of Internet dial-up access. 1991 Wide Area Information Servers (WAIS) provides a mechanism for indexing and accessing information on the Internet. World-wide web (WWW) originally developed to provide a distributed hypermedia system. Easy access to any form of information anywhere in the world.
  7. 7. 1992 First MBONE audio multicast (March) and video multicast (November). The term "Surfing the Internet" is coined by Jean Armour Polly. 1994 Number of Hosts 3 Million. 10,000 WWW sites. 10,000 News groups. ARPANET/Internet celebrates 25th anniversary 1995 Microsoft launches Internet Explorer.
  8. 8. 1997 AOL launches instant messenger 1998 Google founded 2001 Wikipedia launches References: http://www.netvalley.com/archives/mirrors/davemarsh-timeline-1.htm http://www.avg.com/history-of-internet
