How the internet was made?

The internet has its roots in a networking project started by the Pentagon’s Advanced Research Project Agency (ARPA), an agency of the U.S. Department of Defense. ARPA’s goal was to build a network that allowed scientists at different physical locations to share information and work together on military and scientific projects and could function even if part of the network is destroyed by a disaster such as a nuclear attack. The Network was called ARPANET, became functional in September 1969, linking scientific and academic researchers across the United States.

The original ARPANET consisted of four computers, one each located at the University of California at Los Angeles, University of California at Santa Barbara, The Stand ford Research Institute, and the University of Utah. Each of these computers served as a host on the network.

A host, more commonly known as a server today, is a computer that provides services and connections to other computers on the network. The host often uses high-speed communication to transfer data and messages over a network. By 1984, ARPANET had more than 1,000 individual computers linked as hosts. Today, Millions of hosts are connected to this network, which now is known as the internet.

The internet consist of many local, regional and international networks. Both public and private organizations own networks on the internet. These networks along with phone companies, and the Government, all contribute towards the internal structure of the internet.

Who is the Owner of the Internet?

No single person, Company, Institution, or Government Agency owns the Internet. Each organization on the internet is responsible only for maintaining its own network. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), however, oversees research and sets standards and guidelines for many areas of the internet. The mission of W3C is to ensure the continued growth of the web. Nearly 400 organizations all around the world are members of the W3C, Advising, Defining Standards, and addressing other issues.
