World Wide Web (www) is one of the services provided by the Internet. The internet can be compared to a highway system whereas the World Wide Web can be compared to the cargo or trailer travelling on the highway.

“www” is a system in which documents (web pages) stored in special computers (web servers) can be accessed and viewed from any part of the world by computers that are connected to the Internet. These documents (web pages) can be accessed and viewed using a special program called a ‘web browser’ e.g Internet Explorer, Netscape navigator, Crazy, Mozilla, Opera, Bolt, etc.

The web pages contain texts, graphics, animations and videos as well as hypertext links. The links let users jump from one page to another.

Web pages are specially formatted using a web page formatting program called HTML(Hypertext Markup Language) that supports links to other documents. This means that you can jump from one document to another just by clicking the hyperlinks. When hypertext (documents that contain links) and hypermedia (documents containing links to text, graphics, sound, and video) are placed on the World Wide Web, they are usually called web pages.
