4 Client/Server Structure of the World Wide Web
On the Internet, your computer becomes a Web client in a worldwide client/server network. Web browser: (client software) software that runs on your computer to make it a Web client. Web servers: Computers connected to the Internet that contain files their owners have made available publicly through their Internet connections.

5 Browser Accesses server Retrieves HTML document using HTTP
Displays the page in a window on your screen May I assume you’ve done this? Look at our syllabus, references, links, unixlinx

6 Hypertext, Links, and Hypermedia
Hypertext Markup Language (HTML): standard language used on the Web. HTML uses codes (tags) to tell the Web browser software how to display text. HTML anchor tag: enables Web designers to link HTML documents to each other. Hypertext links: can connect HTML documents together; can also connect one part of HTML document to another part. Hypermedia links: hyperlinks that connect to computer files that contain pictures, graphics, and media objects such as sound and video clips.

8 Web Site Organization When a Web browser displays an HTML document, it is often referred to as a Web page. A collection of linked Web pages with a common theme is called a Web site. The main page that all of the other pages on the Web site are organized around (and link back to) is called the site’s home page.

9 Addresses on the Web Internet Protocol Address (IP): unique id number given to each computer on the Internet. 4 8-bit numbers (called octet in networking) separated by dots. Each is or 0 to 28-1. Domain Name: unique name associated with specific IP address by a program that runs on an Internet host computer.

10 Addresses on the Web Domain Name Software (DNS) coordinates IP addresses and domain names. Domain name server: the host computer that runs DNS software. The last part of domain name is called its top-level domain (TLD). New ones have been added by ICANN.

11 Common Top Level Domains (TLDs)

12 Uniform Resource Locator
Unique address of each webpage Domain name of computer on which file resides. Path of folder or directory on computer on which file resides.May not need it if the file is in the publc_html directory. Filename name of file. index.html is the default.

A padlock symbol appears in the status bar when Internet Explorer loads an encrypted Web page.

34 Getting Help in Internet Explorer

35 Summary Web pages and Web sites make up the World Wide Web.
The Web uses a client/server structure in which Web server computers make Web page files available to Web client computers that are running Web browser software.

36 Summary Each server computer on the Internet has an IP address that is mapped to a domain name. The protocol, domain name, path, and Web page filename make up the Uniform Resource Locator (URL). Last 2 are optional.

37 Summary Web browsers display Web pages and maintain a history list that can be used to find pages previously visited. Copyright exists even if the work does not contain a copyright notice.

38 Summary Web browsers allow users to print and save Web pages and elements of Web pages. All Web browsers have the same basic elements and can be used to explore the Web in similar ways.
