WWW versus Internet

  • What is the difference?
    I came across such a notion recently – that one is "blah-blah-blah" - while the other is what is between the blablabla :scared: (no, they didn't mean the hyphens*;)*).

    As a linguist (having not completed any diploma - but still), I see the words being quite similar in nature: web=net in the context.
    However, if we consider the prefix "inter-" – then the Internet is those holes between the ropes, huh? 🙂

    Yes, and please share your devices you use to access the Internet (beware the holes! :eek: ) 🙂

  • 'WWW' does not equal the 'Internet', as 'WWW' usually only relates to web pages (or hyper linked documents), mostly written in HTML etc. Whereas the 'Internet' encompasses all forms of web access, such as: FTP (File Transfer Protocol), BBS (Bulletin Board System), Gopher Protocol (TC/IP application protocol) etc.

  • I thought "BBS" stood for "bloody bullshit"? 🙂

    (Did you see my last question? Or do you think we'll need a separate thread for that?)

  • WWW is (a) part of the Internet.
