How does the Web Work?

In order to understand how the web works, it is important to know what the web is as it relates to technology. The World Wide Web is a collection of web sites which can be access from anywhere or anyone in the world with an internet connection. Each site on the web is considered a address, much like the addresses of homes in neighborhoods. No two people in that neighborhood can have the same address and no two web sites can share the same address. The owner of the site loads the files or pages of the site via FTP server to his designated address.
