How does the Internet work?

In a nutshell, the Internet works by providing a way for two computers to communicate with each other. Aside from the complex wiring and hardware/software issues of the basic connections, this is accomplished by two distinct types of software programs, Clients, and Servers. Server software responds to Client requests and "serves" the requested files and/or data back to the Client software. The Client software then translates the data sent by the Server and displays the data on the users computer so that you can read it.

For example, right now you are using a Client software program, commonly referred to as a web browser to view this web page. You requested, or "asked" for the page from the Server by either typing this web site name in a special input area of the browser display screen, or by clicking on a link provided by a search engine "Server" which delivered our web site name in a link to you. The human readable name that you typed is known as the URL, or Uniform Resource Locator, or Domain Name. Read more below for more information about Domain Names and how they work.
