The World Wide Web (WWW), also known as the Web, is an information system in which documents and other web resources are identified by Uniform Resource Locators (URLs, such as, which may be interconnected by hyperlinks, and are accessible over the Internet. The World Wide Web (WWW), also known as the Web, is a network of interconnected computer networks that connect computers all over the world. HTTP is used to transmit information between computers, and a web browser is used to view the information. A web server is also used to publish information on the World Wide Web, which is a software programme that publishes information on the World Wide Web. The World Wide Web is not identical with the Internet, which existed in some form more than two decades before the Web and on top of which the Web is constructed. The World wide web are two distinct entities.

The World Wide Web was created in 1989 by an English physicist named Tim Berners-Lee. In 1990, while working at the CERN laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland, he created the world's first web browser. After being made available to additional academic institutes beginning in January 1991, the browser was made available to the general public beginning in August 1991. When websites for public use first became accessible in 1993–4, the World Wide Web began to make its way into daily life. Throughout the evolution of the Information Age, the World Wide Web has played a pivotal role, and it is the main tool that billions of people use to communicate with one another on the World Wide Web.

Despite the fact that online resources may be any kind of downloadable material, web pages are hypertext texts that are structured in Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) (HTML). A special HTML syntax shows embedded hyperlinks with URLs, which allows users to go to other online sites by clicking on them. Websites, in addition to text, may include references to pictures, video, audio, and software components, all of which are either shown or internally performed by the user's web browser to produce pages or streams of multimedia information to the user.

A website is made up of a collection of online resources that have a similar topic and, in most cases, a shared domain name. A website is a collection of pages that is kept on a computer that is running a web server, which is a software that answers to requests made over the Internet by web browsers operating on the user's computer. Website content may be supplied by a publisher, or it can be created interactively by users via social media. Websites are made available for a variety of purposes, including informational, entertainment, commercial, and governmental purposes.
