The Internet is a huge network
of computers spanning this planet and is now started to bring in the
surrounding area like space. Some computers like servers share data, others
just surf the web as clients downloading the data. Public Internet began in the
late 70's. In the 70*s web users used an interface called telnet, but now that
program is mainly obsolete. Telnet is most widely deployed in accessing college
The Internet is very helpful,
because it's a huge database of knowledge, from the pictures of family trips to
an analysis of quantum mechanics. Everyone should have the Internet because of
its near instantaneous communication and huge wealth of knowledge. But how to
go on the Internet and do a search for information we need. There are two ways
to do it.
The first is when you know an
internet address of data you need and the second one is when you try to find
information you need by using a search program. In the beginning we have got to
enter any browser you like. It could be an Internet Explorer, Netscape
Navigator or Opera, etc. If we have a broadband connection, we connect to the
Internet at once. If not, we have to set up and connect to our dial-up service.
Finally, if we want to find some information in the Internet, we are to type an
address of this data in the browser we use or simply use the existing
search-programs such as the google search program, rambler search program,
yandex search program or yahoo search program.
They are very simple and
popular networks of sites. In these programs we can just type the word or name
of thing, we would like to find and then press enter. A search program solves
this problem. We get our results in the same window. After we get our results,
we simply choose whatever site best matches our query or keep searching.
Besides data, one can get from
the Internet, we can also send and receive e-mail or electronic mail. This
internet service is cheaper than ordinary mail and much quicker. It is becoming
popular day by day. We can get some news from the Internet, because there are
many informational servers in the web.
