Most people use the terms “The Internet” and “The Web” interchangeably, although in reality they are two separate, but related, things.
The Internet is everything. It’s the massive network of wires, and connections sending data around the planet at light speed. And it’s exactly what you are thinking of right now! Yup, you got it.
The Web (or WWW) is a SUBSET of The Internet.
- Basically, it’s the pages we see in a browser.
- It uses the HTTP protocol (just look at the start of any URL).
- It display Web pages (written with HTML/CSS/JS).
