The first website



We explored how and where the first website was started, and who was responsible for launching WorldWideWeb

The first website

While employed at CERN, the son of computer science Berners-Lee, in the 1980s, he studied how difficult it was to keep track of all the projects of all scientists of that organization around the world.
“At that time, there was different information on different computers, it was necessary to log on to other computers to gather all the information. Sometimes, it was necessary to learn various other programs for different computers.”
In March 1989, Berners-Lee proposed to his managers at CERN an organizational information system that would use hypertext to connect documents from various computers connected to the Internet.
(Hypertext allows access to a document or part of a document by clicking on a coded word or phrase).

The proposal was initially dismissed as an empty idea but an interesting one. Berners-Lee enlisted the help of Robert Caillia, a Belgian engineer for CERN, to advance the proposal, and in the 1990s they were approved for the project.
Originally, the project was called “Information Management”, but after a few name changes, the name was still known today, WorldWideWeb.

Start of a World Wide Web project

By the end of 1990, using a NeXT computer, Berners-Lee had developed key technologies that would lay the foundation for WorldWideWeb, including Hypertext Markup Language (HTML), to create web pages; Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), a group of rules for sending data across the web; and Uniform Resource Locators (URLs), for addressing documents or pages.

He also developed a basic browser and server program.
The launch of the web as a publicly available service on the Internet began on 6. August 1991. year, when Berners-Lee published the first website.
The website contained information about the WorldWideWeb project, explaining what the web is and how to use it. The address of the page that still stands today is the same address


Berners-Lee has rejected offers for a patent for web technology. His wish was for the project to be accessible to everyone and free of charge so that it could be developed and upgraded as quickly as possible.
1993. year, a team of experts at the National Supercomputing Center at the University of Illinois introduced Mosaic, the first web browser.
Over the next few years, sites such as Yahoo (1994), Amazon (1995), eBay (1995) and Google (1998) were published.

As Facebook entered the market in 2004. As of the end of the year, the Internet had more than 51 million pages, according to data from Internet Live Stats.
