Week 8 -internet

This week is our last class for this subject. In the class we had learnt about internet. Internet now become part of my life in UTM since every assignment need we search the information in the internet. In other words internet most important needs in the university after food, clothes and hostel…hahaha.. XD

What is internet??

For your information, internet is a global system of interconnected computer networks that use the standard Internet protocol suite to serve billions of users worldwide. It is a network of networks that consists of millions of private, public, academic, business, and government networks, of local to global scope, that are linked by a broad array of electronic, wireless and optical networking technologies.

IP address

                Do you know what IP address is? It is a numerical label assigned to each device participating in a computer network that uses the Internet Protocol for communication. Each computer and other devices have their own IP address. IP address is divided into two parts:

1)      one identifying the network
2)      one identifying the node or host

The Class of the address determines which part belongs to the network address and which part belongs to the node address.

Internet service provider (ISP)

                ISP is an organization that provides access to the Internet. Access ISPs directly connect clients to the Internet using copper wires, wireless or fiber-optic connections. Hosting ISPs lease server space for smaller businesses and other people (colocation). Transit ISPs provide large amounts of bandwidth for connecting hosting ISPs to access ISPs.

Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP)

                HTTP is an application protocol for distributed, collaborative, hypermedia information systems. It is the foundation of data communication for the World Wide Web. In the other word HTTP is the protocol to exchange or transfer hypertext.

Ok that’s all. I hope you got what I want to tell you…
Have a nice day...
