The Internet Birth Evolution

A lot of research was also done on the protocols being used in the internet and finally a protocol was designed which could cater to multiple types of connections. The protocol was called TCP/IP. With the arrival of TCP/IP the network grew overwhelmingly.

The genesis of WWW
By the 1990s, the internet was being used by academic and research institutes only. A new technology named World Wide Web was invented by CERN physicist Tim Berners – Lee. The WWW brought a whole new revolution in the Internet and the Internet became extremely popular among non-academic users as well. Much of this progress was fuelled by Internet Service Providers (ISPs) which enabled the users to get connected to internet from their homes.
