The origin of the Internet back to the late 60s, but now probably many people’s hard to believe that humanity ever could exist without the global network. The very first web page was created just 25 years ago. The inaugural page wasn’t truly public when it went live at CERN on December 20th, 1990 (that wouldn’t happen until August 1991). For this reason, still it remained unchanged, and the relevant page of the European Organization for Nuclear Research operates at a different address.

The first website went online 25 years ago today

That site was created by Sir Tim Berners-Lee (considered to be one of the fathers of the internet) exactly on 20 December 1990 and already works at info.cern.ch. If you take into account the current standards, rather it is not too large values, because only consists of simple text and links, and it was part of the first version of HTML, which has now been superseded by more modern solutions. Nevertheless, the whole is a museum and offers a view of the origins of websites. It is worth noting that the site was published in the internal network of CERN 25 years ago, but it was only made ​​public in August 1991.

At that time no one bothered clunky page design because the first graphical Web browser called Mosaic was formed only two years later, in 1993. Previously, the site was developed in the form of lines of text, an example of which can be seen through the simulation shown in the CERN. Of course, the operation of the first web site does not require too much computing power and server initially served NeXTCube unit that was manufactured by the company NeXT. The one that Steve Jobs founded in 1985, a few months after his temporary departure from Apple.
