Web chat The Internet provides facility for a real time (on-line) communicating with one to one or one to many computers. This is popularly known as chat. On the Internet, chatting is talking to other people who are using the Internet at the same time you are. Usually, this “talking” is the exchange of typed-in messages requiring one site as the repository for the messages (or “chat site”) and a group of users who take part from anywhere on the Internet.
15/ ADTU OLE Summary The Internet is a global collection of people computers which are linked together by cables and telephone lines making communication possible among them in a common language. Computer network by definition allows sharing of resources. As far as safe movement of data is concerned, there exists a set of rules which governs the sending and receiving of data on the Internet. These rules are implemented in two parts in the network software and are called Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and Internet Protocol (IP). Username is same as the one which you may use when logging in to the computer on which you have your Internet account. Logging in is the process of gaining access to your account on a computer which shared by several users. Domain may be an apartment complex, a town, or even a country. Sub-domains may correspond to organisations. The Internet as we know it today, in the mid-1990s, traces it origins back to a Defence Department project in 1969. An Internet service provider (ISP) is an organisation that provides Internet accounts, whether dial-in, DSL, ISDN, cable, satellite or wireless. Internet Protocol Address (or IP Address) is a unique address that computing devices use to identify itself and communicate with other devices in the Internet Protocol network. The DNS is a distributed system, meaning that only the 13 root servers contain the complete database of domain names and IP addresses. All other DNS servers are installed at lower levels of the hierarchy and maintain only certain pieces of the overall database. Internet can and does provide a host of other services apart from the normal data transfer. These services include Chat, E-mail, News Groups and Gopher. Through the Internet one can find knowledge resources that allow one to study virtually any discipline imaginable. References Sherman,J., 2003. History of the Internet , Demco Media. Miller, P.
