1 I NTERNET BASICS Eng. Mohammad Alenezi Content prepared by Eng. Mohd Alenezi


3 T ABLE OF C ONTENT Introduction what is the internet? the history of the internet What is the world wide web? Terms to be familiar with Components of the internet Internet concepts The browser Navigating the web Subject Directories Search Engines Useful sites E-mail Using Email Error Messages Definitions

4 W HAT IS THE I NTERNET ? The Internet is a collection of millions of computers, all linked together on a network to communicate. The Internet is the largest and most well known computer network in the world.

5 INTRODUCTION Home computer links to internet through: Phone Wi-Fi Wireless DSL Modem ISP (internet service provider) o In business computers have (NIC) Network Interface Card LAN (local area network) High speed ISP = 1.5 mb/s while normal phone = 30 – 50 kb/s largest ISP connect through Fiber (undersea, satellite)

6 M ODEM A device used to attach your computer to telephone system, convert data into sound which is sent over the telephone line, the receiving modem turn the sound into data which computer can understand

7 C OMPUTER N ETWORKS AND THE I NTERNET A network is two or more intelligent devices connected by communication link or wirelessly Network is a collection of hardware and other devices that are connected together so that users can share hardware, software and data. LAN (local area network) Local network connecting computers within the same building WAN (wide area network) more than one local network connecting together

8 Wireless network


10 1965 - the U.S. Defense research program to develop communication protocols 1968 - First generation of networking hardware and software 1969 - ARPANET connects first 4 universities in the United States 1970 – 1973 ARPANET successes to allow scientists to share data 1971 - The ARPANET grows to 23 hosts connecting universities 1973 - The ARPANET goes international 1982 - The term 'Internet' is used for the first time. T HE HISTORY OF I NTERNET

11 1982 – 87 Bob Kahn and Vint Cerf creates TCP/IP, the common language of all Internet computers 1986, the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), provides a major backbone communication 1991 - The World Wide Web is born! 1993 - the first graphics-based Web browser 1995 - the Internet in commercial hands 1996 - Nearly 10 million hosts online. The Internet covers the globe

12 C OMPONENTS OF THE INTERNET Email E-mail addresses uniquely identify a mail user and a mail server, Separated by an @ No blank spaces are allowed Telnet Chat & instant messaging World Wide Web Facebook Twitter

13 The World Wide Web (www) refers to all of the web pages available on all the HTTP web servers on the Internet protocol based on hypertext developed by Tim Berners-Lee and others Almost support every protocol available on net Internet is not the same thing as the World Wide Web The Internet is the infrastructure for the World Wide Web The Internet is also the infrastructure for email and file sharing, for instance W HAT IS THE W ORLD W IDE W EB ?

14 I NTERNET CONCEPTS Clients & Servers IP Addresses Web Pages Hypertext Protocols

15 Server network Machines that provides services (web servers, FTP servers) to other machines called servers The other computers on a network that access network resources through the network server are called clients

16 IP A DDRESSES & D OMAIN N AMES o IP Addresses Each machine on the internet is assigned a unique address (IP) IP addresses are 32-bit numbers looks: Every web server on the Internet has an IP address, and your computer has one too. for Domain name A domain name is an alias for an IP (Internet Protocol) address: Domain Name Registrars administer Domain names and IP addresses Generic TLD's (top level domain),.org,.net,.gov,.mil, and the,.info, etc. Country TLD' = Germany,.sc = Seychelles Island,.kw = ? is a domain name (everything after the protocol up to the next slash, if any) Your browser's address bar will recognize IP addresses just as well as domain names. Every domain name and IP address is unique on the Internet

17 W EB PAGES Web sit is a collection of web pages are stored on computers called web servers Web pages are accessed with a web browser program like Internet Explorer, Safari, Netscape, Firefox or Opera

18 H YPERTEXT Hypertext is a document containing words that connect to other documents A single hypertext can contain links(image, video, audio & text) to many documents Using language called HTML ( H yper T ext M arkup L anguage) PROTOCOL In IT a protocol is the special set of rules for communications On the internet TCP/IP protocols are used: TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) which uses a set of rules to exchange messages with other internet points at the information packet level IP (Internet Protocol) which uses a set of rules to send and receive messages at the internet address level FTP (File Transfer Protocol) HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol)

19 Web page URLs usually begin with the standard protocol identifier http:// Hypertext transfer protocol This part of the URL Next comes the Identifies the Web server folder(s) in which the & domain name Hosting the Web page. Web page is stored, If necessary. This is the Web page document that is to be retrieved and displayed. http:// IP A DDRESSES. URL S AND D OMAIN N AMES Protocol web server domain folder page

20 WWW (World Wide Web) - all the resources and users on the Internet that are using the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP). Browser- -Contains the basic software information over the Internet. Download To copy data from a remote computer to a local computer. Upload To send data from a local computer to a remote computer. E-mail - is the exchange of messages by telecommunication. E- mail can be distributed to lists of people as well as to individuals. However, you can also send non-text files, such as graphic images and sound files, as attachments sent in binary streams. Home Page - The beginning "page" of any site. HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) - The coding language used to create documents for use on the World Wide Web. T ERMS TO B E F AMILIAR W ITH :

21 HTTP (HyperText Transport Protocol) - the set of rules for exchanging files (text, graphic images, sound, video, and other multimedia files) on the World Wide Web. Hyperlinks: take you to a different page when you click on them can be text or graphics Search Engine - A web server that collects data from other web servers and puts it into a database. TCP/IP -- TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) is the basic communication language or protocol of the Internet URL (Uniform Resource Locator) - The Internet address. The prefix of a URL indicates which area of the Internet will be accessed. URLs look differently depending on the Internet resource you are seeking. Address Bar: where you can type a URL of a page you want to see. Contains the URL of the page you are currently viewing History list: tracks the URL you've visited in the past x weeks Search sites: Google, Yahoo, Ask

22 C OMPONENTS OF THE INTERNET Internet is made up of ISP's (internet service provider) Regional networks (large network) Backbone networks (major high-speed network) Web servers Accessing Networks Needs Modem or other network adapter dialup via the public telephone network or broadband such as cable, DSL, satellite Web browser ISP: a service that connects you to the Internet User ID and password to log on

23 W HAT IS A W EB B ROWSER ? Its a basic software enable users in order to travel, find, retrieve, view and send information over the Internet The most popular browsers are Microsoft Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator and Mozilla Firefox Address Bar Standard Buttons Toolbar Menu Bar Title Bar

26 Boot processing Power on Boot part of the computer OS loaded into the memory Diagnostic Launches programs antivirus, instant messaging Start up PC User interface Command line Graphical user interface (GUI) Windows Icons Menus Toolbars Taskbar Hyperlinks Sizing buttons Dialog boxes

27 W HAT IS A URL? URL (Uniform Resource Locater) the combination of protocol, domain name (Or IP address), folder and page (file) name all taken together. Every server on the Internet has an IP number, a unique number consisting of 4 parts separated by dots The IP number is the server's address. However, it is harder for people to remember numbers than to remember word combinations, so addresses are given "word-based" addresses called URLs. The URL and the IP number are one and the same The standard way to give the address of any resource on the Internet that is part of the World Wide Web (WWW). A URL looks like this: telnet:// gopher:// The URL is divided into sections: transfer/transport protocol :// server (or domain). generic top level domain/path/filename, The first part of a URL defines the transport protocol. http:// (HyperText Transport Protocol) moves graphical, hypertext files ftp:// (File Transfer Protocol) moves a file between 2 computers gopher:// (Gopher client) moves text-based files news: (News group reader) accesses a discussion group telnet:// (Telnet client) allows remote login to another computer
