The Internet is an integral part of our everyday lives. But if you are new to the online experience, it may be a bit overwhelming. On the Internet you can keep in touch with friends and family, read the news, follow your hobbies, watch your favorite TV programs, shop, pay bills and much, much more. The Internet is an extremely large network of computers. A network is a group of two or more computer systems linked together. The Internet is a connection of millions of computer networks. The world wide web is a virtual network of websites connected by hyperlinks (or “links”). Websites are stored on servers on the Internet, so the world wide web is a part of the Internet.
