            Quite soon after the development of internet founded by ARPANET which originally provided internet that we know today, numerous developments and transitions occurred during the early 70’s until it reached the point of developing the (TCP) Transfer Control Protocol for the purpose of cross-networking. Though, (NCP) Network Control Protocol had been used at first, another internet was successfully added to TCP for furthering the networking more specifically on messages routing.  It’s called the TCP/IP network.

Remarkably, this was the standard of the advent of World Wide Web (WWW) when the founder Berners-Lee, returned to his former company CERN in 1984 and discovered another breakthrough of his system NeXT in early 1980 and named it  World Wide Web which was the first Web server.

            The World Wide Web ("WWW") which is commonly known as Web is a magnificent tool to help people acquire some information globally through computers and internet. This is a web service functioning within internet. This came up the operation of e-mail and triggered the evolution of file-sharing among government researchers in the United States.

In 1990, Berners-Lee gradually developed Web server, Web browser and Web pages to define as well as to describe his project which is World Wide Web. This so-called browser could possibly access FTP files as well as Usenet newsgroup. However, despite of his efforts to make his project completely working, he should overcome shortcomings and some limitations. But this didn’t make him dismayed but rather revolutionized his WWW and became available service on the internet publicly in 1991. Most of his clients are universities and laboratories which include SLAC and FERMILAB.

Another web protocol known as HTTP and Gopher became popular whose hypertext menus served as a file system instead of HTML files. Such directory pages e.g. , Berners-Lee site were bookmarked by early Web users. WAIS also indexed other sites which only showed the ability to submit full-text similar to the capability of the search engines.
