This server is known as a Web Server and is connected to the Internet. The first Web page that is displayed when you access a Web site is known as the home page. Every Web site has a unique home page EQ: What are the uses and features of the Internet and the World Wide Web?</p></li><li><p>Every Web site is stored on a computer that is part of a vast network. To access a Web site, you need to access the computer on which the Web site is stored. IP address - Internet Protocol address. numeric address that specifies the exact location of a computer on the Web. such as 127.0.0.1. corresponding domain name because it is easier to remember names for the IP address 127.0.0.1 can be proseware.com. Uniform Resource Locator (URL), computers. In the example http://www.microsoft.com/learning/default.asphttp indicates what protocol to use and microsoft.com/learning/default.asp specifies the exact location of the Web page.Overview of a Web AddressEQ: What are the uses and features of the Internet and the World Wide Web?</p></li><li><p>WEB AddressURL.com - commercial organization. .edu - educational institutions, such as schools, colleges, and universities. .net - network-oriented organization or for an ISP. .org - nonprofit organization. .info - informative in nature. .museum - a museumURL contains a domain name suffix describing the type of organization the website belongs to.http://www.microsoft.com/learning/default.aspEQ: What are the uses and features of the Internet and the World Wide Web?</p></li><li><p>The steps to find the IP Address of your machine are as follows:</p><p>Click Start, and click Run.In the Run dialog box, type cmd and click OK.In the Command Prompt Window, at the command prompt, type ipconfig and press ENTER.

To access a Web site, you need to access the computer on which the Web site is stored. Each computer on the Web is identified by a unique address, IP address - Internet Protocol address. IP address is a numeric address that specifies the exact location of a computer on the Web. You can access a computer on the Web by using an IP address, such as 192.168.0.1.The IP address is linked to a corresponding domain name because it is easier to remember names For example, the corresponding domain name for the IP address 127.0.0.1 can be proseware.com. A Web site for a domain is accessed with the help of a unique alphanumeric address known as the Web address. The Web address is also known as the Uniform Resource Locator (URL), which specifies the protocol to be used and the exact location of the Web site. A protocol is a standard method of transferring data between different computers. In the example http://www.microsoft.com/learning/default.asp, http indicates what protocol to use and microsoft.com/learning/default.asp specifies the exact location of the Web page.</p></li></ul>
