Which is the first website of the world? 1st 100 sites included



Today we will look into the history of internet. So, have you ever thought, who is the inventor of internet, which is the first website of world?, which is the oldest registered .com domain? This thread will answer all these questions. Tim Berners-Lee, a scientist at CERN, invented the World Wide Web (WWW) in 1989. The earlier aim of world wide web was to meet the demand for automatic information sharing between scientists working in different universities and institutes all over the world. Cern is an European Organization for Nuclear Research, which has more than 2,500 employees, as well as some 7,931 scientists and engineers from different parts of the world.


Let’s see the screenshot of first and oldest website of the world :: These screen shots were taken from a NeXT computer running Tim Berners-Lee’s original WorldWideWeb browser.

The first ever web browser was also an editor, making the web an interactive medium, the problem was that it only ran on the NeXTStep operating system. With recent phenomena like blogs and wikis, the web is beginning to develop the kind of collaborative nature that its inventor envisaged from the start.
